    Ok... I know business has been getting a little bit on the slow side... but, these buggers outta create some activity!!!

    Geeze, these damn things are like subterranean termites on steroids and viagra at the same time. Not only do they procreate at an incredible rate, they also have one hell-of-an appetite.

    Tell ya the truth, I had no idea they had become so ramped in Texas in such a short period of time. Holy Cow!!

    Actually, the regular Southeastern subterranean termite eats more on a termite-by-termite basis than Formosan subterranean termites do.

    It's just that a typical Formosan subterranean colony is about 10 time larger (10 time more termites) than a typical Southeastern subterranean termite colony. Meaning that they can eat in ONE YEAR what it would take a Southeastern subterranean colony TEN YEARS to eat.
