How to Determine if You Have Termites
Termites can be difficult to spot, especially until they have established an entire colony of termites in your home. Many homeowners will not realize there is an issue until it is too late.There are signs that may indicate that you have an infestation listed below:
- Mud Tubes: Mud tubes are narrow tubes that may be similar to the size of pencil that you can find on the exterior of your building where the termites enter your home. If you break them open, termites are likely to come out.
- Discarded Wings: Another sign of a new infestation is the discarded wings that termites molt after moving from an old colony to a new one. They shed them because they will not use them again.
- Wood Damage: Signs of wood damage is usually below the surface or behind walls, but will appear in long grooves within the wood.
