Signs of Termites

How do you know if you might have a termite problem in your home? This depends in part on the type of termite you’re dealing with. Subterranean termites are known for building mud tubes that connect the ground to home structures in order to allow workers to pass back and forth. These workers feed on wood as they make their usual rounds between residential structures and their underground nests.

Other termites, such as Formosan termites, can build large nests outside and establish huge colonies that can invade homes. Seeing small holes in wood, having areas of weakened wood, and seeing piles of discarded wings are all signs that you should have your home checked for termites.
