The most common type of them in North America is a soil feeding type which is also know as the subterranean termite. This type is known to feed on cotton, paper, wood, bush and tree roots. They especially enjoy the cellulose part of the wood and will devour anything in their path that contains it.

These termites can be found throughout a building whether it be the rafters of the attic or the foundation in the basement. They are found by looking for their mud tubes or by finding the. Sometimes you may even find the wings of the kings and queens of the colony lying around. You need to be on the watch for their tunnels and tubes as the swarms are not generally easy to see. This means that many homes are being destroyed without the owners even realizing it.

Eastern Subterranean Termites can develop colonies with up to 5 million individuals in number. However, the average is closer to the 30-40 thousand range. They have what is called swarm intelligence which means that they act and they move as if they were one entity. It is not uncommon for their colony to live for up to 30 years.
