Across America, more and more homeowners are investing in security systems, usually ones with cameras. Why? Because with these systems in place they can better protect their investments. Unfortunately, not all threats to homes are picked up on these cameras. Every year, homes are destroyed to the tune of 5 billion dollars by an insect too evasive to be seen by even the highest tech security system. Of course, this is mostly because this threat hides inside of the wood structures in homes making them nearly invisible to the naked eye.
