There are ways to identify and prevent termite damage. Termites cause more damage to homes and businesses than any other pest, costing homeowners nearly $5 billion in property damage each year. Here are a few signs you may have an infestation on your property.
FLYING TERMITES, DISCARDED WINGS AND DROPPINGS
This is usually one of the first signs of a termite infestation.
The flying termites are the males and females that have left the nest to find a suitable mate, which could be near your home. Frass (or termite droppings) are also common, and look like small pellets that take on the same color as the wood that the termites consumed.
MUD TUBES ON EXTERIOR WALLS
Mud tubes act as protection for termites and are commonly found near the foundation of your home. Subterranean termites typically build these tubes, which are made of soil and termite droppings, to provide moisture for them. Avoid attracting termites by eliminating moisture-rich environments, wood-to-soil contact, and keep mulch and wood chips away from the home.
