What Attracts Termites?
These pests can be found in any number of places that contain wood. They are commonly found in the wood on the outside of your home, windowsills, wood floors, and furniture. They are attracted to nearly any source that contains wood. They find moisture, mulch, landscaping wood, firewood, and dead trees particularly enticing. Watch for moisture as well as wood that is near your property. Where there is a wood source, termites will find their way.
Colonies can go unnoticed until the damage has become extensive. The damage can present itself in numerous forms. You may notice sagging drywall, peeling or discolored paint, loose tiles, and warped wood. On the outside of your home, you may see piles of sawdust, termite droppings, and discarded termite wings. While these pests can be rather elusive, it’s critical that you look for early warning signs to prevent immense damage. Warning signs are not something to put off. Schedule an inspection when you suspect termites so that we can provide the most effective termite treatment options.
Signs of an Infestation
Damage to Wallpaper and Paint
Termites will eat the wood paneling that is inside your walls. While eating, they create small holes as well as tunnels. Sometimes, doing this leaves noticeable marks and changes to your wall. However, in some instances, they will cause damage under the surface without affecting the wallpaper or paint. Small holes, warped wood, bubbled paint, and discolored wallpaper can indicate a more severe problem. Changes to your walls signal that termites could be building a colony inside, and termite protection is needed.
Subterranean termites use mud tubes to protect themselves and travel throughout the colony. Mud tubes are narrow tunnels made of mud. They typically will start in the ground and move towards the area of wood where the subterranean termite colony is. Mud tubes can be mistaken for patches of mud and easily dismissed. If you notice mud tubes or suspect these pests around your property, contact us to schedule our inspection service. It is safer to rule out termites than let an infestation go untreated.
There are different types of termites within a termite colony. One of those types is a termite swarmer. Termite swarmers are the reproductive members of the colony and are characterized by their wings. After they find a mate, they discard their wings. Where there are discarded wings, there is likely a colony nearby.
Stuck Doors and Windows
Stuck doors and windows are one of the early signs of a termite infestation. This pest commonly looks for the wood they have easy access to. Door frames are one of those areas. When they eat door frames and windowsills, it can cause wood to warp and shift. The shift is what causes the doors and windows to stick. This may be accompanied by sagging floors or ceilings. This is another less prominent sign that indicates a termite problem.
Early signs of termite activity can be extremely helpful in spotting an infestation. We can stop the damage from progressing when we catch the problem early. Although some signs may suggest a different type of property damage, it is important that you don’t ignore them.
As termites digest the wood they eat, they push it out of the colony to prevent buildup. Some termites produce droppings that look like wood dust, while others produce pellet-shaped droppings. Typically, subterranean termites use droppings to create the mud tunnels we mentioned previously. Termite droppings can be difficult to spot, given that they take different forms.
Termite Inspection and Treatment
Termites can be hard to detect for the untrained eye. Scheduling regular inspections and taking preventative measures can save your home from immense property damage. It’s our goal to keep your property safe, and that starts with inspections. Our well-trained technicians provide a thorough termite inspection to check for signs of a termite infestation. We’ll look for tell-tale signs, live termites, and damage. After establishing the extent of the situation, we can construct a termite control protection plan to treat these aggressive pests.
