Do termites eat hardwood?

Yes. Termites can eat hardwood. There is a misguided belief out there that termites don’t like or won’t eat hardwood. As a Timber Pest Inspector, I’m here to tell you that’s not the case. I regularly see the damage caused by termites when providing termite inspections, pre-purchase inspections and termite treatment jobs. Termites never cease to amaze me and therefore recommend not being complacent on your yearly Termite Inspection. Call LessPest More Control if you’re not sure for peace of mind.
