Signs You Have Termites


The idea of wood-eating insects eating the walls of your home is alarming if you’re a homeowner. It’s better to get an exterminator as soon as possible to get rid of the infestation, but how can you tell if there is one? Here are a few warning indications of damage from drywood, subterranean, and dampwood termites that should be enough to raise suspicion and make arrangements for a termite inspection and extermination from one of your local pest control firms.

Insect swarms that are trying to form new colonies in the spring are the simplest indicators of an infestation. Termites resemble winged ants, but pay particular attention to the antennae since they are straight in a termite. You can also search the area around your home’s foundation for dried dirt filling up cracks or mud tunnels that insects use to escape. All of them could indicate a potential issue even before you notice sawdust from wood deterioration. If you notice any of these symptoms, get in touch with a nearby termite control business.
