Are termites dangerous?
Termites are not dangerous to a human, termites love wood and they feed and breed in word. They are attracted to light so many of them are in your roof where you cannot see them, when they are dangerous is when they have eaten through your wood and they have created a rotting wood which then becomes dangerous for anyone to be in that building as parts of your home or building can fall down at any time as time goes by with having termites infested in your home. It can take 5-8 years for the termites to be really dangerous for someone to have them in their home. We do not agree with waiting that long before treating the problem area.
