What Are The Signs Of Termites?

Termites can create thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home and property and can even make your home structurally unsound without any warning. When dealing with termites, it is always best to contact an expert in pest control to inspect and take care of your home. But it is always a good idea to know the signs that you might have a termite infestation so you are not caught off guard.

Discarded Swarmer Wings

One of the telltale signs of termites comes from termite swarming that happens every year in early spring. Swarmers, also known as reproductives, leave the colony at a young age in search of mates and to begin new colonies on their own—which may be your home. When swarmers find a mate, they discard their wings and move underground to start a colony where they will remain for life. You might find discarded wings near windowsills and doors and are often the only visible sign of a termite issue.

You Can Hear Them Working Or Eating

The majority of termites are blind and deaf so termite communication comes in the form of pheromones and vibrations. Termite workers will sometimes bang their heads and shake their bodies if their colony is threatened or disturbed. You may detect this as a quiet clicking noise coming from your floors or the walls of your home. They are also noisy eaters and you might even be able to hear them chowing down on your home if you put your ears close enough to any infested wood.

You Think You Have An Ant Problem

Worker termites closely resemble ants in size and shape and are often mistaken for ant infestations. The differences to make note of are, first and foremost, their color. Termites are light in color, often a white or creamy color and can look almost translucent. If you think you have a white ant infestation, chances are you actually have termites and you need to call a pest professional right away.

Warped Floorboards, Doors, Windows or Peeling Paint

We all know that weather and dampness makes wood expand and contract and that goes for our doorjambs and window sills as well. But tight fitting doors and hard-to-open windows can be caused by termites as well. Termites produce moisture when eating and tunneling through door and window frames causing the wood to warp which can make it tough to open those doors or windows. This warping can also make your wooden or laminate floorboards buckle and can even cause damage to the paint on your walls such that it resembles water damage. If you notice any of these changes, reach out to an expert pest service today.
