Not necessarily. These termites can eat door frames, window sills, rafters and roofing in addition to the wooden framing behind the brick of your home. Some new homes have steel framing to prevent structural damage from the termites, but the termites can eat many items containing cellulose, including picture frames, furniture and paper. No home is “termite- proof” unless there is no cellulose within for them to consume.
My house is made of brick. Is it protected against Formosan termites?
