SIGNS OF A TERMITE INFESTATION

Swarmers

Swarmers, are young female and male winged termites. In the springtime, termite swarmers will emerge from their nest to mate and search for a new location to start a colony, which typically includes our homes. As such, termite swarmers, or their discarded wings near windowsills and doors, are often the first (and only outwardly visible) sign of a termite problem.

Mud Tubes

Subterranean termites, the most destructive termite species, build mud tubes to provide moisture while they travel between their colony and food source. Mud tubes are most often found near the home’s foundation.

Wood Damage

Termites tend to eat wood from the inside out, so wood that sounds hollow when tapped often signifies a termite infestation. Homeowners should also look for blistering pieces of wood.

Uneven or Bubbling Paint

Uneven or bubbling paint is often a sign of moisture build up, which could mean one of two things – water damage or termites.

Frass

Drywood termites produce wood-colored droppings as they eat through infested wood. If a homeowner finds a small pile of what looks like pellets inside or outside the home, it could be a sign of a drywood termite infestation. This is not a typical sign in the Missouri area.
