How to Determine if You Have Termites
Many homeowners do not know how to spot termites, which means that the termites can establish a colony and do serious damage before they realize they have entered their home. Termite do their damage in the floor joists and behind the walls without seeing them. Here are some signs to keep an eye out for.
- Discarded Wings
Piles of discarded wings are a sign of a newly established colony. When the termites move to a new location, they will pull their wings off.
- Mud Tubes
Termites will build thin mud tubes up the side of your foundation to protect them as they crawl up to your home.

The wood damage is below the surface and in long grooves.
