I debated about adding this picture versus an illustration and decided to go with the real deal because it gives you a true-to-life understanding of what is happening when you hear the phrase, 'termite damage.' Not to freak you out completely, but it's one of these guys chowing down on anything wooden they can get a hold of. Now that I've got your attention ...
