5 Signs of Termite Infestation and How to Deal with It

When termites have been present on your property, they leave some visible evidence. Keep an eye out for these signs to detect termites in time, and avoid bigger damages.

  1. Small Tubes of Mud

These keep their colony protected from external elements and allow them to move back and forth between their food sources.

  1. Swarmers 

Termites massed together are commonly found around a porch, door, floor joint, or by windows.

  1. Pile of Wings 

A lot of wings mean that swarmers have emerged recently, termites pull their wings off shortly after landing and finding a mate.

  1. Termite Nests

These are thicker than mud tubes. It’s common to find them after the swarm has occurred.

  1. Damaged Wood

Damages in wood may look like water damage (bubbled or peeling paint).

Once you have detected some signs, it is time to choose the right treatment. Different types of termite infestations require different kinds of treatment.
