Why do termites like to eat wooden floors?

Termites' food is substance Cellulose present in wood. Although the wood is hard, the palate of termites has a very strong structure, easy to bite. The intestinal tract of this insect secretes a compound that converts cellulose into sugar to feed itself. Taiwan termites have the strongest destructive power, about 400g of wood/day.

It is not possible to completely eliminate termites because their reproductive ability is very high. Termites can lay 8.000 to 10.000 eggs per day. Termite eggs hatch at about 1 degrees Celsius, so they often choose low-humidity areas in the house to nest. Vietnam is a country with a humid tropical monsoon climate, so termites develop very quickly. Besides, termites live in swarms, so it is very difficult to eradicate completely.

3 signs that wooden floors have termites and how to handle them

3 signs that the wood floor is being silently attacked by termites are:

  • Tiny holes appear on the surface of the floorboards: Holes are a sign that the flooring is being chipped by termites. Wood planks will be rotten and hollow, so weak that they cannot be used if not handled in time.
  • A creaking sound comes from under the board: The sound emitted when termites are active makes us restless, especially at night.
  • Termites appear: If you see a “grain of sand” in your home, termites are most likely present. The termite excrement is in the form of tiny pellets, stacked and raised on the board, so it is easy to see.

Two common termite treatment steps are to use a termite bait box and then spray biological termites. The bait box contains pieces of pine impregnated with a lure. Once we have lured the termites out of the nest, we will spray biological inhibitors to cause the termites to infect each other with toxins. With only 2 steps as above, termites can be completely destroyed in about 2-10 days.
