Formosan termites are the most damaging and aggressive of termite species and are found in states across the southern U.S., including Texas. As a type of Subterranean termites, Formosan termites also live in underground colonies. Because of their large colony size and reproductive capacity, they can ingest wood at a faster rate than any other species -- causing faster damage to your home. Their termite colonies are organized into castes depending on tasks -- workers, soldiers, and winged reproductives. The workers provide the food for the colony, the soldiers defend the nest, and the reproductives breed!
