The Biology of Termites: Why the Do What They Do
Did you know that termites are a cousin to the cockroach? They share the biological classification Blattodea. Termites have three stages of development. They begin as an egg, transform into a nymph, and eventually become an adult. Termites are social workers by nature. They live their entire lives in colonies and work until they die. Their entire life is about consuming and achieving their instinctual desire to colonize. Make sure you check out our coupons as well!
Fun Facts About Termites
- Termites Never Sleep: Termites are dedicated workers. From the moment they are alive to the second they die, they are working 24 hours per day, every day.
- $5 Billion Pest: Termites are known as “silent destroyers”, and they can inflict serious structural damage in relatively short order. They are directly responsible for over $5 billion in property damage annually.
- $8,000 - $12,000: By the time an infestation has been identified, they have caused between $8,000 to $12,000 worth of damage to a home.
- Multipliers: The queens in some species of termites can lay 15-25 eggs per minute, which means if you have an infestation, the queen is adding around 40,000 eggs per day to her colony.
- Variety: Termites come in a variety of species, and there are 2700 species of termites in the world.
- Good for You Not Your House: Thanks to their diet, termites are rich in nutrients like iron, calcium, and fatty acids. They also pack a protein punch, which means they are an extremely nutritious food.
Types of Termites
There are three main types of termites, subterranean, drywood, and dampwood.
Subterranean Termites: As the name suggests, these termites live beneath the soil. They are typically transported into homes through wood that comes into contact with the ground. They can also reach your home through mud tubes construct to connect the ground with the wood in your home. Subterranean termites can also use cracks in a home’s foundation to reach wood sources. These types of termites are the most damaging and commonly found in Nebraska and Iowa, as well as throughout the United States.
Drywood Termites: These termites live in wood, like lumber, wooden flooring, and dead trees. Drywood termites do not need to come into contact with soil or the ground outside to reach a home. They are often transported. Drywood colonies are not as large as subterranean ones, and while they are damaging, they cause damage at a slower rate. Although not an established termite species in Nebraska, it is possible for them to travel in wooden objects such as furniture and wine crates.
Dampwood: Formosan and Conehead termites are common species found in other parts of the United States, but they are not typically found in Eastern Nebraska or Western Iowa.

3 Signs I Have Termites
Whether you realize it or not, termites can often live on your property, whether inside our outside for an extended period of time with you knowing. These quiet and discreet intruders can be difficult to identify, often times before it's too late. At Quality Pest Control, we have provided you with 3 signs to look out for to avoid this nightmare scenario.
- Termite Swarmers - Swarmers are mature termite colonies that leave the next during Spring or Fall seasons. With Swarms they can be missed by homeowners as they are typically active during the morning or afternoon, which is when most people are at work or not at home.
- Mud Tubes - "Mud tubes", or tunnels, are what subterranean termites will make in order to serve as bridges between the wood they are eating and their colony. The tubes are made of tiny pieces of soil and debris and can help protect the colony from predators.
- Termite Droppings - Termite droppings can often be mistaken for a pile of sawdust. But, if you notice that this, "saw dust" looking material is near corners in your wall or even on the outside of your home's porch. This is a sign that you may have a nearby Termite infestation.
