The Termite Colony
How do you tread enemy lines? Well, first of all, make sure you recognize them when you see one.
Termites are very social creatures. They have complex social structures that have different status. Termites work in an organized system where everyone knows the rules, the roles to play, and the authority to serve. They live in a colony composed of up to several million members. Harmony and cooperation are essential and typical characteristics found in a termite colony. Termites work together to find food sources that could be used to sustain the whole group.
The following are the following members found in the typical colony:
Workers. Most termites are born workers. They are light-colored and about the size of rice grains. They are responsible for maintaining the nest, tending to the queen, gathering food and chewing them so that they can feed it to everyone.
Male and Female Reproductives. The only termite that has wings is the one responsible for parenting new members of the colonies.
Soldiers. This type of termite protects the colonies from their mortal enemies, the ants. They have long heads and strong jaws to help them fight.
The Queen. The queen is no doubt the largest and most powerful member of the termite colony. It can grow up to the length of our fingers. Hundreds of termite workers push the queen so that it can move. Her primary role is to reproduce. Well, it probably does not do much than lay eggs. It can lay eggs as often as every 15 seconds. Exterminators target the workers as without them the entire termite colony will not be able to sustain itself. There will not be enough food and eventually the termite colony will cease to exist.
Save your investments and beloved estates from destruction. The colony of pests is so organized that you’ll need a treatment as organized as theirs. Call in help from a professional and also one that is experienced in termite baiting systems to achieve total termite colony elimination.
