Chews thru concrete and plumbing! Spits acid!!

"I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

Spits acid? Uh-oh. What's the life cycle of this thing look like? And are they sure it's not from someplace further away than Asia?

Formosans are to be feared. Ask any Romulan and you'll hear the stuff of fables.

Is it just me or is nature getting more and more dangerous?

Formosan termites have been in Florida since 1980, and in other states since the 60's. It's a little late to panic.

Since they are illegal aliens, the proven strategy is to build a wall, put their kids in concentration camps, etc.

A "Super Bug" can also be a stomach virus that does similar things.

A primal termite knocked on wood
And tasted it and found it good.
And that is why your cousin May
Fell through the parlor floor today.
Ogden Nash, I think

The Burmese Pythons will get them.

That's nothing. You should see the destruction caused by my two year old!
