Termites by the Digits

Termites are strength to be reckoned with. Every homeowner dreads termite injures but a lot of people aren't conscious how big issue termites in America really are. Take a look at some of the astounding numbers below and ask yourself if it’s actually worth it to forgo having a expert termite assessment each year…
2,500: The predictable numeral of active termite species living on the planet.
42: The number of feet the major termite mound ever recorded stood tall, located in Africa.
3,000,000,000: The figure of dollars in damage caused by termites to US homes every year.
30,000: Numeral of eggs a solitary termite queen can lay in a day if conditions are correct.
49: The number of states where bottomless termites have been detected. Alaska is the only exemption.
25: The number of years a strong, lively termite queen can exist.
1,000: The number of pounds of wood a solitary colony of termites can gnaw through in a year.
2: The number of inches from head to tip a queen termite can calculate when fully full-grown.
24: The number of hours a day a termite colony eats…they never end!
1,000: The number of pounds of termites there is predictable to be for every human on the planet.
5,000,000: How many termites can live in a solitary subterranean colony.
220,000: The dollar sum of stack of Indian rupees eaten by a termite colony in 2011.
600,000: The number of U.S. homes infested with termites every year.
The numbers are hard to quarrel with. Termites are a big difficulty and they’ve been around for hundreds of millions of years. Termites are a flexible bug!
If you think you may have termites in or around your home it’s a good idea to bring in a specialized inspector as soon as probable. The faster you get to work clearing out an accessible termite issue the better off you’ll be. Termites eat rapidly and can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage in a figure of months. A specialized termite plan is more reasonable than many homeowners think and can save you lots of money in the long run.
