Termites play a vital role in nature. They break down dead wood and other cellulose materials. This is helpful in the ecosystem and the balance of nature. However, when termites invade homes, they are a pest and cause billions of dollars in damages in the United States each year. Billions more are spent on for their prevention and treatment making them the most economically important wood-destroying organism in the United States.
