Even though you may not see them - they are out there and trying to gain entry to your home!
Termite pressure in Kansas falls in the moderate to heavy range. It is estimated that there are as many as 8 termite colonies per acre (a heavy infestation, as may be seen in the southern tier of states, will have up to 14 colonies per acre).
To give you perspective, most homes (including lawns) will have a footprint of about hal f an acre. That places 3 to 4 termite colonies on your property, ALL within striking distance of your home.
A mature colony of termites will have anywhere from 1 to 2.5 million termites, or about 7 million termites encircling your home. All of them are hungry and looking for a FREE meal - your home.
To make things worse, termites will travel up to 250 feet from their colony in search of food. That means your home is vulnerable to the millions of termites in each of your neighbors' homes on both sides, across the street, and across the back fence.
