It’s better to be prepared than to be sorry, don’t you think? That’s why we have divided this guide into three sections, we make the fight against termites easier for you.

1. Termites Identification

First of all, you must learn how to identify termites at home, so that they aren’t mistaken for other insects.
Worker Termites usually look like small ants, although termites are cream-colored and have a different appearance depending on their classification (worker, soldier, queen, or king).

When the physical characteristics of termites aren’t enough to identify them, it is better to do it by the place of infestation or by the small, but noticeable signs of termite infestation.

Identify Termite Infestation Placement

You might find Drywood termites in the attic and on the roofs, while Subterranean Termites might be at the bottom of your structure, but keep in mind that any part of your home made of wood can be a potential habitat for termites.
