Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They primarily feed on wood, but also damage paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. Termites can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often are a secondary invader of woody plants already in decline.
Did you know that there are 2600 known species of termites? Termites live on almost every continent. Termites usually inhabit tropic and sub-tropic areas, but they can also survive in other climates. Termites are absent from the Polar Regions because they cannot survive on the low outer temperatures. Ecologically, termites are valuable insects because they decompose (eliminate) huge amount of decaying plant material. Termites that live near the human population produce a lot of damage by destroying the houses and objects made of wood. (Fact From SoftSchools.com)

While buildings may become infested at any time, termites are of particular importance when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale. Besides the monetary impact, thousands of winged termites emerging inside one’s home are an emotionally trying experience — not to mention the thought of termites silently feasting on one’s largest investment.
A Word of Warning: the correct identification of a destructive termite species, inspection of a building for tell-tale signs, analysis of your circumstances and the design and implementation of an effective program for the protection of a building from termite infestations, requires expert skill and judgment based upon professional training and extensive field-work experience in termite control in a wide variety of circumstances.
