Signs You Have Termites
If you’re a homeowner, the prospect of wood destroying insects eating the walls of your house is a terrifying thought. It’s best to have an exterminator get rid of the infestation as soon as possible, but how do you know if there’s a problem? Here are a few warning signs of damage from drywood, subterranean and dampwood termites that should be enough reason to raise suspicion and arrange for one of your local pest control companies to provide termite inspection and extermination.
The easiest way to spot an infestation is by observing swarming insects that are trying to establish new colonies during the spring. Termites look like winged ants, but pay close attention to antennae, as a termite’s antenna is straight. You can also take a look around the foundation of your house for mud tunnels that the bugs use to get around or dried dirt plugging up holes in your home. These are all clues to a possible problem and can be obvious long before you see sawdust from wood damage. If you observe any of these signs, contact a local termite treatment company.
