What are the signs of Termite Infestation?

It’s important to get a termite inspection done by your local pest specialist every one to three years to keep your properties safe from termites. These kind of infestation can compromise the structural stability of a home, and cause thousands of dollars in damage, without anyone even knowing.

Take a look at our Top 5 Signs of a Termite Infestation:

  1. Wood damage – Wood that sounds hollow when tapped often signifies a termite infestation.
  2. Bubbling paint – uneven or bubbling paint may only indicate one thing, water damage or termites.
  3. Piles of frass – these are tiny pellets mostly found at or near the entry of the termites.
  4. Presence of wings – Whenever you see discarded wings or a swarm of insects, they are able to start new colonies. Better contact a pest expert right away.
  5. Mud tubes – the most destructive termite specie is the subterranean termite. They build mud tubes to provide moisture while they travel between their colony and food source.

If you notice one of these signs, better to contact your local pest control right away as termites can cause serious damage to your properties.
