|This termite tunnel was hanging under a church in Bibb City, GA. Termites were infesting the support sill and trying to get their tunnel to hang down and connect to the soil. This would save them time when trudging back and forth delivering food to the colony.||Sometimes when you open a suspect piece of wood with your termite probing tool (Screw-driver), you will expose workers and swarmers. Swarmers are secondary queens and help the queen produce eggs until they eventually leave the colony to start their own colonies.|
|Look closely and you will see a termite tube run up the foundation wall between the brick and the blocks. This is a direct highway between the nest in the ground and the food source which is the lumber in your house.||This massive termite structure at the base of this brick pilaster with a tube leading into a break in the bricks has allowed termites to feed undetected for many years. This termite tunnel would have been found earlier had this homeowner had annual termite inspections.|
|This next series of pictures is interesting as you will see Formosan termite damage and their nest inside the wall.|
|Jimmy Burton, a local termite inspector took these pictures of termites and termite damage.|
