Termites are difficult to detect as they live in the wood in your home or in large colonies under ground where they can't be seen. Here are a few signs that can help determine if you have a termite infestation issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
If your wooden surfaces have cracks and blisters, but there has been no damage caused by water recently, there’s a high possibility you’re dealing with termites. Subterranean Termites are a specie that feeds on subfloors, leaving it to appear water damaged and blistered.
Wood damage may be detected beneath and behind walls, floorboards, and other wooden surfaces. Termites eating into the wood in pursuit of cellulose causes this, leaving long and deep grooves behind. These gaps weaken the timber and cause structural problems over time. Hollowed wood looks more like a honeycomb from the inside and makes a hollow sound.
Mud tubes the size of pencils can be discovered anywhere the earth meets your house. This is because subterranean termites build their nests underneath and travel up to their food supply, which is typically a building framework. To live, these termites require specific temperatures and humidity conditions. Their tunnels assist to block off chilly, dry air, ultimately transforming your house into a breeding ground for them.
Termite wings can be discovered around closed windows, doorways, and other entry places to the house. This happens when termites rush out of their hive to reproduce and create a new colony. Termites tear their wings off as they land since they won’t use them again. For distinguishing purposes, termite wings are all the same size, whereas ants have one bigger and one smaller set of wings.
Termites that live inside wood are known as dry wood termites. They form tunnels while digging and consuming the wood they infiltrate. They construct dumping holes to dispose of their waste to keep themselves clean. Because dry wood termites consume wood, their feces is also wood, resulting in pellet heaps. Dry wood termites may be present; it likely indicates an infestation if you see piles of pellets that look like sawdust.
