TERMITE DAMAGE IMAGE NUMBER ONE
This is an image of some subterranean termite damage to a 2x4 stud that was used to hold a wall in a house that was being renovated. It obviously did not hold up too much of the wall.
Notice the mud inside the tunnels (called galleries). The termites bring this mud into the damage to help keep this area temperature and humdity controlled so that they continue to cause the damage year 'round.
