Does a Termite Infestation Grow Quickly?
A mature termite colony that has been growing for at least five years can consume up to a pound of wood per day. This may not seem like a lot, but this can add up over time if the infestation is not caught in time. Colonies range in size—they can contain anywhere from several hundred to thousands upon thousands of members. Queen termites can lay up to 30,000 eggs in a single day (more than 10 million in a year), which is enough to tell you that a termite colony can grow exponentially. This is why seeking immediate termite control treatments at the first sign of an infestation is so crucial.
