It is hard to imagine that something so small can be so destructive. However, there is always a solution for your problem. Termites are the most destructive insect. They can collapse an entire structure. The hard, saw-toothed jaws of termites are able to bite off extremely small fragments of wood, one piece at a time. Termites do not hibernate, they are active and feeding 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The life cycle of the termite happens in 3 stages; egg, nymph, and adult. Normally, the queen may lay 1,000 eggs a day in a mature colony. Termites can life up to 30 years but 15-17 years is the average.
