Doofenshmirtz uses mind controlled termites to devour all the wood in the tri-state area, thus making a boom for his aluminum siding business.
In the course of the wood eating rampage, the termites destroy a farm, causing the cows to stampede to the city. Fortunately, Phineas and Ferb are there, and decide stopping the stampede is what they are going to do today.
This episode is also the first appearance of Vanessa, Doofenshmirtz's daughter.
