Signs You Could Have Termites

Spring is practically here and along with it comes termites. When the season turns, the termites swarm. These guys have been waiting for the cold winter months to end so they can get out and about. Watch out for these signs that you could have a termite infestation.

  • Wings are a telltale sign that termite swarmers are swarming near your home. As they come out of their nests and search for a new location to colonize, they leave their wings behind near window sills and entryways.
  • Mud tubes are just as the name implies; they are tubes made by the termites from soil, saliva, fecal matter, and other material. Subterranean termites, the most destructive type of termites found in our area, build these tubes to travel from their food source to their nests. They are typically found near the foundation. If you see them, it means termites are active.
  • Noticeable wood damage can be a sign of termites. Termites eat wood from the inside, making it hollow. Subterranean termites feast on softwood and eat along the grain creating a honeycomb pattern in the wood. Rotting wood can also be a sign of termites.
