According to the University of Missouri’s 
Extension Service, there are more than 2500 species of termites worldwide In nature, they are considered to be beneficial because they help with the decay of wood. They can be divided into categories based on where they live. Drywood and dampwood termites live inside various types of woods. The other group, subterranean termites, lives in soil and in wood that is in contact with soil. The four species of termites in Missouri are all of the subterranean type.  These are considered serious pests. If you see them, it’s time to call the termite exterminator! You can identify an active termite infestation by the presence of tunnels in the wood,  live termites and a mixture of soil and feces within the tunnels. 
Much like ants, bees, and wasps, termites live in large, organized colonies with different insects filling different roles. A queen lays the eggs. Workers care for the eggs and the larvae and expand the colony by building and repairing tunnels. Soldiers defend the colony against invaders and predators. Nymphs are termites who are developing wings in order to fly away and start new colonies of their own. 
The U.S. Forest Service estimates that termites cause over two billion dollars worth of damage in the United States each year. That’s more than fire and windstorm combined! Subterranean termites, such as those found here in Missouri, can invade your home by burrowing up through the soil. This can happen in areas where the wood is touching the soil, or by termites following cracks or openings in the foundation until they find wood. Once inside, they will maintain contact with the outside in order to obtain the moisture they require to stay healthy.
