In nature, termites are beneficial because of their ability to break down cellulose and in the process return nutrients to the soil. However, when they infest our homes and other structures, they do more damage than fires, storms and earthquakes with the cost of repairs. Any building made of timber material can be a target. Once they made their way into your homes, there’s no stopping them from eating into anything and everything with cellulose. And cellulose is also present in anything made from paper, so even your books, stacks of newspapers and cardboard boxes are not safe. Don’t let your sweet home be their next target for food.
