What termite eats? Case study of eating damage by termite
Speaking of termites, people would imagine they eat house pillars and trees but it is not only trees what they eat. In fact, they eat everything from plastic to concrete. As a result, termites can spread everywhere. Wood is a favourite for termites. Because termite feed on cellulose, a component of wood.
In other words, they eat wood for nutrition. That is why they eat wood materials such as the pillars in houses. In particular, many cases are reported of termite damage in place with high humidity or poor ventilation.
Places where water is leaking around water, such as bathrooms, washrooms, and kitchens and places where trees are rotting due to rain leaks are places where termites are particularly vulnerable. It happens because termites are vulnerable to dryness and prefer a damp place. However, in fact, they eat not only wood but anything else also.
