probably Termites

it seems to refer to an insect that can devastate a wood frame house. They are too common in countries ... or in America, where most house are made from wood. The insect lives in the ground and makes "tunnels" from mud and creates a path up the foundation into the house... then they begin eating the wood. There is no way to know it is happening unless you see the little mud tunnels they make up the walls... so, there are not many other... if any other. Insects that "eat" houses!
