Because of this, you might think termites are pretty harmless, too. Sure, they’re bad for the home, but so are moths, and nobody is freaking out about them. Unfortunately, that kind of outlook is a mistake. Although they might not do any damage to you medically, they can end up harming your home and making it a danger to your safety.
