Elin Nordegren, the former wife of the professional golf star Tiger Woods, demolished her $12.3 million home in early 2012. While the first reports commented on the extravagance of demolishing the multimillion dollar mansion only to rebuild it in the same spot with nearly the same design, the real reason for the demolition came out later: ant and termite infestation.
Most people realize that termites can do a lot of damage, but just how much damage can termites cause? Experts estimate that around 2 million homes are destroyed by termites and other wood-eating pests each year in the United States. Ignoring a termite problem can cost ten of thousands of dollars in damage over just a few years. Just how fast can termites eat your home? The common estimate is that a full sized colony can consume about 12 inches or one foot of a 2×4 within six months, but that entirely depends on the size of the colony and type of termite. Some termites consume wood at a much slower pace while other termites can cause serious damage to a home within several months. Is your home really a something you are willing to risk? Do not wait and endanger your biggest investment in your future!
