These ground dwelling pests invade your home in the fall to build colonies not just in your walls but, in your floors too. Termite colonies feed as they tunnel into your wood, carving pathways through support beams, wall studs, door jams and framing. Missouri homeowners rarely see the destruction until it’s too late.
