Termites

With the majority of buildings in Southern California made of wood, termites can find an abundance of food sources in the structures of these buildings.  If left to feed freely, termites can cause serious structural damage; in fact, termites are the leading cause of home damage in Southern California, greatly surpassing fires, earthquakes and other natural disasters. One of the two most common types of wood pests in Southern California is the subterranean termite.

Termites live in colonies that, at maturity, number from several hundred to even several million individuals. Colonies use decentralized, self-organized systems of activity guided by swarm intelligence, which exploit food sources and environments unavailable to any single insect acting alone. Certainly, the large groups in which termites exist in addition to their ability to exploit food sources such as your wooden structures make these pests very hard to eradicate on your own. Clearly, when dealing with a termite pest control problem, termites elicit the pressing need for a professional to perform the work of eradicating them for you.
