How to Determine if You Have Termites
Termites live and work behind the scenes. You may not notice them until they have done significant damage. However, there are signs that you can watch for that can indicate termite activity in your home or around your property.
- Discarded Wings
Termites will pull off their wings after they move to a new nest or establish a new colony. If you see discarded wings, you may have a newly established colony.
- Mud Tubes
These are narrow tubes of mud about the width of a pencil on the side of your foundation. If you break them open, you should see termites.
- Wood Damage
The wood damage will be in long grooves and usually behind or under the surface of the wood.
