How to Identify a Termite Infestation
Termites are small, wood-destroying insects that live in colonies. People often mistake them for ants, but there are a few key differences between the two. Termites have straight antennae, but ants have bent antennae. Also, termites have a thick waist, and ants are slender in the middle. Ants can be black, brown, or red, but termites are usually light brown or white.
You can find termites in damp, dark areas of your home, such as your basement or crawl space. They also hide on walls, floors, and ceilings.
If you notice any of the following signs of a termite infestation, call us right away:
Frass is termite droppings. They look like small, wood-colored pellets, and you can find them near termite tunnels.
Swarmers are winged termites that are starting a new colony. You should take care of them right away before they can take root and build nests.
- Mud Tubes
Mud tubes are small tunnels that termites use to travel from their colony to their food source.
- Wood Damage
Termites eat wood from the inside out, so it can be difficult to spot the damage. Look for any wood that is hollow-sounding, soft, or crumbling. This damage indicates the presence of termites.
