Can termites come in? My house is made out of Concrete, Steel roof truss and No Wood.

Updated: May 3


Yes they can!!


Termites can't and don't eat concrete. Concrete do not contain cellulose that termites are after like in the wood materials.


Having said that, it doesn't mean termites cannot go through concrete cracks to reach their food source. Termites only need any opening as slim and thin as a business card and they will go through and reach their source of wood. Concrete cracks occur due to expansion and shrinkage. This is a normal building occurrence


To sum it up. Termite do not eat concrete but they can go through the concrete cracks to reach their food source.
