Termites cause up to $5 billion of property damage a year! In case you want a better idea of what 5,000,000,000 dollars looks like…With $5 billion dollars you could buy 200 Indianapolis mansions. Imagining termites causing such a high level of destruction may sound impossible but subterranean termites don’t sleep. Cellulose structures don’t stand a chance! “Termites can have up to 2 million members in their colony and one property can have multiple satellite colonies,” said Curtis Rand, V.P. of Operations for Franklin Pest Solutions. “Since termites don’t sleep, that’s 24 hrs. of non stop damage they are wreaking on property.”
