What Are the Signs of a Termite Infestation?
More often than not, you’ll see the effects of termites before you see the termites themselves. Termites tend to nest deep within the structure of a home, and once the colony has matured they’ll start to leave behind some serious damage. You don’t want adult termites to eat away at the structure of your home unimpeded, so it’s important to know the signs of their presence. You might have a termite infestation if you’ve seen:
- Termite droppings
- Damaged/hollow wood
- Piles of discarded wings
- Swarmer termites in or around the house
- Mud tubes along the concrete foundation
- Blisters in wood flooring
- Cracked or bubbling paint
- Small holes in the drywall
When you call an extermination company like D’s Pest Control to treat your termites, they’ll be looking for all of these signs, as well as evidence of termite activity and termite damage as a whole.
