Colony growth is slow, and it may take years before swarmers are produced .A mature colony of subterranean termites can range from a low of 20,000 to a high of 5 million workers, with an average of 300,000.

The colony's queen will add 5,000 to 10,000 eggs per year to the total.

An average subterranean termite colony can consume 5 grams of wood per day, the equivalent of 2 1/3 linear feet of a 2'x4' pine board annually.

The termite colony is made up of different types (castes) of termites - each with separate work responsibilities.
