Do Termites Bite?

August 17, 2020

Termites are wood-destroying insects that cause severe harm to the structure of homes but are not known to bite humans. However, there are soldier termites that have the ability to bite humans but will only do so if handled. The soldier termites are equipped to combat invading insects, such as ants and members of rival termite colonies.

Essentially, these tiny insects definitely bite wood and do attack other insects, but they do not bite people. If you feel you may have termites in Arizona, feel free to call today. One of our termite control specialists would be happy to come out and give your home an inspection.
