Subterranean termites are the single greatest economic pest in the United States.
These termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year to homes, historical
structures, and commercial buildings. In addition to buildings, termites also
consume valuable books, documents and photographs. Subterranean termites
have existed for over 55 million years and are extremely good at what they do. A
great deal of their success can be attributed to their cooperative behavior.
Subterranean termites are social insects. This means that they live in family
groups called colonies. Social insects are different from other insects
(grasshoppers, cockroaches, or beetles) because each termite in the colony
performs a specific job that benefits the colony as a whole. Most other insects
work only for themselves. For example, each individual grasshopper will feed and
reproduce itself independently of its siblings. In the termite colony, an entire group
or caste of termites is responsible for feeding their parents and siblings, while
another caste is responsible for reproduction. For more information about termites,
