Subterranean termites are the most common species of termite found in the U.S. They are also the most destructive species and can entirely collapse a building. The annual price tag associated with Subterranean Termite Control and the cost to repair their damage annually exceeds over $2 billion. The winged forms, most commonly referred to as "swarmers," are only 1/2 inch long, and the workers and soldiers species are only 1/4 inch long. The swarmers are most often seen in the open and are dark brown/black. Workers are whitish-colored, blind, and very sensitive to heat, cold, and dry air.
