Did you know?
There's a lot of them
If you added up all the termites on the planet, they’d weigh more than all the humans!
They're hungry little bugs
Termite colonies are always eating! 24/7, 365 days a year!
They can live longer than any other insect
Termite queens live longer than any other insect on the planet, old queens can live for up to 50 years!
There's lots of different termites
There’s over 2,700 different species of termites in the world.
They have big appetites
Bed bugs eat blood (ew!), and they can ingest up to 7x their own body weight in a single feeding!
They are sneaky little pests
Bed bugs are not only small and hard to spot, but they have chemicals in their saliva (spit) that allow them to numb their prey’s skin when they feed!
They aren't big on moving
The average bed bug won’t move more than 30 ft. in its lifetime. They depend on their hosts to travel and aren’t able to jump or fly!
They adapt to schedules
Bed bugs won’t only come out at night! If the people they’re after sleep during the day, they’re more than happy to come out to feed in the light.
