http://termiteinspect.org/tips-in-using-the-best-home-termite-treatment/ Termites are using pheromones or special chemical scent to communicate with each other. Moreover, they also leave their scent trails to direct other termite workers. In some termite species, the queen termite can even take control of the colony’s growth or development simply by feeding her young with pheromone-laden poop.
Termites can cause serious damage to your home if you don’t try to prevent them. There is no guarantee that you will never get them, but by practicing preventative measures you can reduce your risk of structural damage.
