Infestation is an ability introduced in Insect Invasion that allows a creature to burrow inside an enemy structure. After Infesting, a creature will never be seen again and it will be as if it was killed. This ability deals up to 2125 points of damage to a structure (2000 in Creature Chaos) over the course of 60 seconds.
Infestation requires at least 50% of a full endurance bar to be used and as a triggered ability, a creature will not Infest unless commanded to be the player.
Although this ability is powerful, one of its biggest drawbacks is the amount of time it needs to inflict its full damage. It works well against buildings like the Lightning Rod, which has low hit points, but an opponent can counter-balance the corrosive damage by having one or two Henchmen repair it. This is still beneficial to you as they will be focusing on a building and not collecting coal, which will weaken your enemy's economy.
