In Summary of what to look for in a Termite Attack


What to look for in a termite attack

  • Mud Tubes: Termites build these tunnel-like structures on walls, ceilings or floors as a pathway from their colony to their food source. The presence of mud tubes indicates an active termite infestation.

  • Discarded Wings: After termites swarm, they shed their wings. If you find tiny, uniform discarded wings around your home, it could signal a termite infestation.

  • Hollowed or Damaged Wood: Termites often eat wood from the inside out, leaving it hollow. If your wood sounds hollow when tapped, it might be a sign of termite damage.

  • Frass or Termite Droppings: Termites often leave behind their droppings, or 'frass'. This looks like tiny piles of sawdust or wood pellets.

  • Bubbling Paint and Uneven Surfaces: If the paint on your wooden surfaces is cracking or bubbling, this could be a sign of termites feeding within.
