Is It Possible I Have Termites? How to Know

Are termites slowly but surely doing damage to your home? These pests can end up making houses and other structures unsafe due to widespread damage. If you’ve noticed any of the following signs, then it’s time for termite control services.

Termite Swarms

Have you noticed flying termites near windows or doors? These are swarmers, or flying termites that leave to build colonies nearby. You might also see discarded wings scattered around if you have a termite problem. Termites tend to swarm during spring, so keep an eye out for them when the weather warms up.

Mud Tubes

Do you see any tubes made of mud that connect to your foundation or other parts of your home? Termites don’t nest inside homes. Workers use mud tubes to go back and forth between their underground nest and your home. They feed on cellulose in wood and bring food back to their nest. You might notice these tubes or spots of dried mud on your home’s exterior.

Termite Damage

Are there signs of damage in your home? Depending on how much damage there is, you might have areas of wood that feel softer than they should. You might have floors that sag or doors that won’t close right. This can happen as termites cause severe damage to wood walls and other structures in your home.

What to Do About Termites

Finding a termite problem early on is best, but it’s always important to seek professional services for any signs of termite activity. This helps lower the risk of serious damage to your property. Pest control experts can locate termite nests and use effective and safe methods to destroy colonies.
