What is the cause of termites?

MOISTURE. Subterranean termites, who build their colonies in the soil, are attracted to moisture. Standing water in or around your home's foundation creates an attractive environment for these termites.

How do termites start out?

Subterranean termites live in colonies in the soil. They require moisture from the soil to survive, and can tunnel hundreds of feet to reach feeding sites. To reach food above ground, they build mud tubes to protect them from exposure to light, air and enemies.
