Termites On The Ceiling?
Termites are extremely opportunistic pests and will eat their way through whatever is available to them at the time. What’s worse is that termites don’t sleep which means they munch through cellulose, wood and the structural elements of your home at a rapid pace.
Termites in the Attic?
If you have spotted termite tubes, or pencil-like formations, on a ceiling in your home, it’s a possible sign that you have termites in your attic, but a definite sign that you have a termite issue in your home. If termites are in your attic, there’s a good chance they may be eating away at the rafters, roof deck, joists and floor. Termites can make quick work of your home and most likely, the attic is a great place to continue to eat undisturbed.
The best course of action if you have found signs of termites on your ceiling is to call a knowledgeable pest professional who knows where to look for termite damage and the most efficient course of action to take with regard to your termite issue.
If you want to make sure that what you are seeing is actually termite damage, there are signs to look for. If you spot bubbling and discoloration that looks similar to water damage on your ceilings, any areas of your ceiling that are beginning to sag, termite tunnels (mud tubes) or mounds of what look like tiny wood pellets (this is called frass), you’re seeing the signs of termites in your home.
