The Legend of the Termite
Story by Mikhail Jamisola Illustrated by Rowin Agarao (MUSIC) A very long time ago, every kingdom in Luzon
was successfully engaged in trade. Each kingdom had its own special product. One kingdom which has a vast mountain range
was ruled by Queen Ana. She was an excellent leader, and so her
subjects were dutiful followers as well. Queen Ana had only one desire. That was to make her
kingdom larger and more prosperous. “I shall become the happiest of queens if I can fulfill my dream,” she said to herself. Nature had blessed the mountain range ruled
by Queen Ana. Its forests were thick with large and towering
trees. Because the trees were in plenty, it became the commodity they traded with the other kingdoms. They exchanged the logs they obtained for
rice, vegetables, fruits, and fish from the neighboring kingdoms. “Let us try to do even better at cutting down
trees so that our kingdom will quickly prosper,” Queen Ana persuaded her subjects. Time flew by. The kingdoms of Luzon were beginning to
flourish. Trade prospered alongside it. The kingdoms near the sea needed plenty of
wood to build ships and other seafaring vessels. The kingdoms in the plains also needed wood
to build storehouses for their products. Queen Ana saw this was her chance to realize
her dream. Queen Ana’s kingdom prospered. All of the kingdoms depended on her because she was the only one who possessed mountains and forests. Though already prosperous, Queen Ana still
was not satisfied. She gave orders to all of her subjects. “Cut down every tree in the forest. We shall use them to trade with the other
kingdoms,” she said. Queen Ana had become too ambitious. She was very eager to enlarge
and extend her kingdom. “When all the trees in the forest are cut
down, I shall be the most prosperous of all!” she
said. Contrary to what she believed, the other kingdoms
did not need any wood. “Queen Ana, we have bartered for too many
logs already. We do not need them anymore,” one king said. Every tree in Queen Ana’s kingdom had already
been cut down. They were likewise unable to trade them with
the other kingdoms. Because her kingdom was so large, all of the
fish, rice, and vegetables that had been bartered in exchange for their
logs had already been consumed. A famine fell upon the kingdom of Queen Ana. The people had nothing to eat. Eventually, they just chose to eat the chopped-up
logs rather than die of hunger. Meanwhile, Mother Nature was angered when
she saw that the mountains had been denuded of its trees. “Who did this?” she asked. When MOther Nature learned that Queen Ana
and her followers had cut down the trees, she punished them. She shrank Queen Ana’s kingdom and turned
them into insects resembling ants. She restored the denuded mountains in order
to prevent any tragedies that could arise from the disappearance of the trees. Time went by, and the wood-eating ants came
to be called “anay” (termite). Just like Queen Ana, they keep extending their
territory, which sometimes even reached our homes.

When is Termite Season? – Get rid of Termites – Prevent Termites NYC NJ CT


Termite season does not have a set beginning
and end, as termites are active year round. The time period when termites are most visible
through swarms, discarded wings and droppings is during the months of March to November
. In warmer climates, termites remain consistently
active year round. In cooler climates, termites typically are less active during the winter
months (November – February). While termites in these areas may slow down during the holidays,
their continued activity means that they can cause damage at any time. Here are the signs of termites and termite
damage: • Wood shavings or frass near their excavation
sites • Mud tubes or tunnels that extend to the
foundation • Swollen or sagging floors
• Warped doors • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped To learn more about how to get rid of termites

Brandie Mathison-Klein: What You Should Know About Termites and Termite Damage


(upbeat music) – This is Brandie with
the Mathison-Klein Group at Keller Williams Realty. And today, we are here
with Tom Kleinschnitz from All American Home Services. And we are going to be
talking all about termites. – Termites, my favorite bug. (laughing) – Tom, thank you so much
for joining us today. – It’s my pleasure to be here. My pleasure. – So, you know so much about termites, and so many people don’t
know anything about termites. – Correct. – So, can you share with us–
– Yes. – All the details that we
need to know about termites. – Alright, great. Well, first of all, the one thing you need to know about termites is they eat wood and they
eat it very ferociously. So, it’s a big, billion dollar industry right now in America. So, if you’re having a
home inspection done, you should also have a
termite inspection done. – Definitely. – Make sure that you
don’t have any termites, alive or previous damage in the home, so. – And so, from my understanding, there’s two different types of termites. Is that correct? – On a general scale, yes. Well, there’s more than
two, but generally, we look at termites as either subterranean or dry wood termites. – And explain the
difference between those. – Okay, so subterranean
termites live in the ground, and then they come up
through, from the ground, into your home, and forge around for any cellulose-type material. So, it doesn’t always
have to be wood either. It can be, you know, drywall paper or anything like that, so.
– Okay. – Any kind of cellulose-type material. – Dry woods tend to fly in. They tend to like hardwoods. So, you’ll find them
more in older buildings. – Okay. – Like, downtown Clermont,
there’s a quite a few of them down there. So they like hardwoods as preferred, subterraneans like softer wood. – Okay. And so, how can you tell if
there’s evidence of termites? Well there’s several ways that we use. First of all, visually,
your eyes and a flashlight is the best thing. So, we’re gonna be looking
for gallery damage, exit holes, ways they come
in and out of the home. Those type of issues
show up pretty readily. – [Brandie] Okay.
– Yeah. – [Brandie] And so,
what do they look like? – [Tom] Well, they look
like little white bugs. They really do.
– Do they, okay. – [Tom] They’re about, maybe
a quarter of an inch long, depending on the species. And it depends what type, they have, they have workers and they have soldiers. And soldiers look quite a bit different. – [Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] They look like
those big, red-headed ants. They got big mandibles on the front. – [Brandie] Kinda like
a big carpenter ant? – [Tom] Kinda like a carpenter ant, yeah. – [Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] But with a lighter colored body. – [ Brandie] Okay. – [Tom] And they defend
their colonies very well, so. – So, what happens if someone thinks that they might have termites, or– – Well, the first thing is not to panic. – Okay. – Termites, they’re easy to kill. So, the treatments we have
nowadays are extremely good. – Okay. – So, unless the home
is extensively damaged, it takes a long time for a
home to be extensively damaged. So, termites can be in
your home for five years before you’ll even see any
signs of termite activity whatsoever. – Really?
Okay. – Yeah, so. – So, let’s say you’re
doing a home inspection, and you find termite
damage that’s on a home, and it’s not super extensive. Is that something that should
necessarily be a deal breaker? Or is that something that could
be remediated pretty easily? – Uh, it’s actually can be
remediated pretty easily. We don’t know the extent of damage unless you’re actually
gonna take the drywall off and inspect the interior wood. But if we have minor damage shown, there’s a good chance that’s a good sale, ’cause the house is in good structural, it’s a good structurally sound home. – Okay. – I personally bought a home
that had termite damage. – Okay. – Yeah, so, once we treat the home, then we know the home doesn’t have any, is not gonna have any live termites, and you should be good to go. – Okay.
– Yeah. – And I know that you really
know your termite stuff. You also happen to own a
pest control company as well. – Yes we do.
– Is that correct? – That’s correct.
– Okay. And you offer termite, termite warr– – Termite treatment.
– Yes. – So we offer the treatment,
and we warranty the home. – Okay.
– Yeah. – Wonderful. – So, if we’re gonna
do the home inspection, we can do a good inspection on it. And then if there is
some type of evidence, we can treat is as a discount. We always discount our
homes (mumbles) clients. – Okay. And so, if someone has an interest in utilizing your services, for either their home inspection or pest control, how would they reach out to you? – Same way as before, you
can go to our website, AmericanHomeServicesFL.com,
or call us at 352-429-7062. – Wonderful. Alright guys. Well that’s a wrap for today. Thank you so much for joining us. And remember, when it
comes to your real estate, remember BrandieSells.com. (upbeat music)

What was my day like?  Foundation Find  Termite Find

What was my day like? Foundation Find Termite Find


We got two inspections in a marketing
event I’m not performing the home inspections my guys are I’m gonna sneak
up on them and see if I can find anything today the secret to real estate
agents hearts are through their stomachs and also good service just let me know
this is heavy extremely heavy didn’t get much video of the conference
they didn’t really want me videoing in there but it went really well I crushed
it let’s try to make it over to Robert’s inspection and try to figure out if we
can find anything good to show you on it we got two good finds in a funny one
this is a flood house they started ripping some walls out and we found some
termites and the garage foundations failing let me go show you those issues
all right so for the first time I’m going to show you the termites and I’m
gonna show you why they chose this area but mainly I want to show you what
termite damage looks like so let’s show you that so you can see how this on its
the woods almost like paper like and you have a lot of mud inside of here
this is all related to termite damage you also get these mud tubes here this
is what they use to travel Oh perfect yeah so you can see you can see how it’s
a little thick it’s not so granule II like if I touch this and this was ants it would
just fall right out let’s say use this for cover and then here you go all
around the window too as well pulling across the top right here across
the top right here in down same scenario Robert found termites in
this corner it’s actually a pretty good find and I’ll show you why they chose
this area too as well so right here in the corner really hard to find but he’s
able to pull back the wood and there’s a lotta termite activity through this the
stud right here alright so the main reason why they chose the chose this
area on the house it’s the perfect area for them they have wood to ground
contact they’re going to have a constant saw at the source of moisture coming off
the roof right here and also at the base you have a lot of wood to ground content
they were able to stay there and nobody could ever know that they were moving
because the sheet rock was in place they probably got a little bit of debris on
the inside let me show you why they chose the garage so on the garage the
reason why they chose this spot same scenario would a ground contact you also
have this nice little tree perfect amount of shade and moisture so let me
get a little closer so you can see Robert likes to call this the termite
honey hole alright for this next issue the garage foundation has failed this
happened a lot whenever it flooded in the area there’s a lot of movement
across the slab good thing the house is ok there was just very very little
movement but the garage is split in half and let me show you how I know and what
I was looking for ok so you can see right here or the crack goes straight
through the slab goes all the way down to the bottom and it travels all the way through one of the main
reasons why this happened is you have the tree over here get the flood it
costs a lot of movement and that’s the reason why the slab dropped not an
engineer but it’s just an educated guess alright so for the funny one I just
wanted to show it to you real quick I have a perfectly working shower in this
the flood home they like they like the way it looks I guess they kept it so you
know you know the shower pan is perfect it’s holding this water all the grout
looks good you know I got hot and cold water no your your shower might be I
mean your also might be flooded but you still can take a shower all right you
know the spiel by now if you please like and subscribe to the videos and if you
have any questions please reach out leave a comment thanks bye

Termites eat one million dollars, crush girl’s study abroad dream


Termites eat one million dollars, crush girl’s study abroad dream A student named Chen who graduated from Fu-Jen University had been saving up to study abroad since high school. She kept all her allowance money, gifts and hard-earned money in the family safe. She saved a NT$1 million over 8 years. Sometimes she would open up the safe to count the cash, encouraging herself to make more. This April she opened the safe to find all the cash saving had been eaten by termites. She put the money into a plastic bag and rushed it to the Ministry of Justice’s Bureau of Investigation, asking for help from the Bureau’s “currency expert”. The expert saved NT$ 6.7 million out of NT$7 million in water-logged cash for a businessman last year. But this time, there was nothing she could do. There were still termite eggs present when she received the damaged cash. Only the metal security thread survived. She killed the eggs using alcohol, but could only save NT$20,000. With her dreams crushed, Miss Chen burst into tears at the scene. The expert was also upset she could not help the girl save her dream. The money specialist reminded the public that most safes on the market are not bug-proof. Desiccating agents and camphor balls are recommended to keep bugs away when using a safe to store money.

Using termites to build solid structures in Mozambique


Water is one of the essentials of life. Right now, there’s one billion people in the world
that don’t have access to clean water this is significant because you have
diseases that are transferred through dirty water.
We’re developing better structures for the people here at Mozambique. We worked on this all year as engineers, through BYU capstone mechanical engineering program. Our original goal was to create a
sustainable building material at little or no cost to the local people.
And we have been sponsored by charitable act to build these better structures. What we focused on is the trees. This is one of their current latrines right here. I mean, at
least they have one. A lot of families don’t even have one. But
the problem is it’s right by this water and this water is a channel that goes all
throughout this community and, I mean, people pour water out of it.The latrine’s right next to it, so this is really all just contaminated
by everything that’s in the latrine. When we were trying to determine a material, we were looking at different things that would be water-resistant, and obviously a brick came up. So the
only problem with a brick is that you have to have a very high clay content, and the
soil in the area is very sandy. The idea that we had was
to take the mud from around a termite
mound, because that mud has higher clay
content, and then that mud brick will be fired, and so by firing it, it becomes water-resistant. By the termites making these mounds, they don’t pull out the big rocks and they keep the clay content pretty high. They bring up the smaller particles and this is the perfect brick-making
clay. By using the termite mound, were getting the clay and the silk content we need
to really burned bricks. We help them to train care for life here today so that they could go out to the villages, but we’re hoping that they will actually train the people here so that it can be sustainable, even after we
leave. The feeling that you get as you’re there interacting with the
people and you can see it’s making a difference to them and that its changing their world, it
makes it all worth it.

The 3 Coolest Things Built By Bugs


long before there were skyscrapers and
strip malls and combination pizza at Taco Bell’s nature had its own architects all
kinds of creatures create all kinds of structures for living raising kids or maybe just the
occasional hookup but centimeter per centimeter some of the mightiest and
most delightfully complex structures ever built have been erected by insects
for example let us consider the geometry of bees you have seen the wondrous creation that
is the honeycomb where bees store their honey and you’ve probably noticed it’s
perfect symmetry each cell having six edges all less than 1 millimeter thick
meeting and exactly an angle of a hundred and twenty degrees but do you
know why they chose the hexagon for this structure your math teacher does it’s all about
maximizing efficiency for each gram of wax that a bee produces to build a
honeycomb it needs to consume at least six grams of honey so bees need the
perfect shape that can be repeated endlessly over a flat area and there are
only three shapes that can fit together without leaving gaps squares equilateral
triangles and hexagons and it turns out hexagons have a smaller total perimeter
than either triangles or squares which means that you can fit a lot more of
them in a given area ancient Greek scientists predicted this
more than 2,000 years ago but it wasn’t until nineteen ninety nine when
university of michigan mathematician Thomas Hales wrote a 19-page proof that
the hexagon is more compact that we knew for sure you may also be familiar with termites
probably in a negative connotation but it’s hard not to respect these insects
for the mounds that they sometimes build there are more than a thousand species
of termites and several species in Africa and Australia have constructed mounds
that surpassed nine meters in height if humans were to build a skyscraper on
that scale it will be more than one and a half kilometers high but as impressive
as this is the real genius of termite architecture is that the mounds
feature of ventilation systems so efficient that humans are actually
copying it termites require the inside of their homes to maintain a constant
temperature of 30.5 degrees Celsius why because termites are also fungus
farmers they grow it as one of their major food sources because outside
temperatures in both Africa and Australia can vary between 2 and 40
degrees Celsius the termites construct a system in and around the
mound so the internal temperature always stays
the same using vents and channels that can be regulated throughout the day air
comes in at the base of the structure and has sucked down into tunnels with
muddy walls as the air moves through the tunnels of wet mud the air temperature
is lowered through evaporative cooling meanwhile warmer air inside the mound is
drawn up by convection currents and escapes through the opening or flue at
the very top if the temperature gets too hot or cold
the termites can easily dig new vents or plug up old ones in order to regulate
their climate in Zimbabwe the country’s largest shopping and office complexes
models on this design with no conventional air conditioning or heating
system the east gate center was built with thick concrete walls that have high
heat capacity the building draws in outside air through fans in the first
floor and is warmed or cold depending on which is hotter the concrete or the air
at night the warm air is vented out through chimneys just like in the
termite mound finally we could spend entire episodes talking about spider
structures and the science of silk but I have to tell you how in 2007 a 180
meter long spiderweb came to be at Lake Tawakoni State Park in East Texas
spiders tend to be pretty territorial sometimes even cannibalisticly
territorial when it comes to building webs for catching food but something
interesting happened in 2007 a particularly wet summer that resulted in
a major surplus of mosquitoes crickets and caterpillar larva instead of
fighting over the abundance of food millions of spiders from at least a
dozen species cooperated by creating a sheet web catch food collectively while
not unprecedented this cooperative web building is extremely rare and also as
you can see you really creepy that web in some places was thick enough to block
out the Sun hopefully that’s not too creepy and thank you for watching this
