What Termites Eat

Termites are known as voracious wood eaters, but what they are really after is the cellulose that the wood is made of. Cellulose is an abundant organic compound and is the main component in the cell walls of plants. Cellulose can also be found in more refined forms such as paper and even in some foods we eat. In addition to wood and plant fibers, termites can chew through just about any material that’s in between them and a meal. That’s why termite damage includes damage to drywall, foam, and plastic.
