Termite Damage

Termites can do a lot of damage. To the tune of $5bn in property damage every year. Despite the fact that they can do so much damage and are so numerous, they can do so without your knowledge until a lot of damage has been done. 

While there are several signs that you might have termites in your home, one sure-fire way to spot termite activity is to inspect your wood, sheetrock, drywood and even ceilings for small holes. These small holes are a sign of termites eating through the wood and consuming the cellulose. 

Termite Exit Holes 

Termite exit holes are a result of termites eating through the paper coating on drywall or wallpaper. Subterranean termites will fill the hole up with dirt while drywood termites will not. 

Termite exit holes are a result of two different kinds of termite behaviors. The first is the aforementioned extraction of cellulose from the wood and paper of structures. The other is a means of creating an exit from the colony for the reproductive members of the colony to leave. Each year, mature termite colonies develop a special caste of termites called alates. These are winged termites that have reproductive capabilities. These alates will leave the nest when sexually mature, fly to find a mate and then start a new colony of their own. 

If you have an established termite colony, it is possible that you could see hundreds of flying termites in and around your home. This might be the first sign of your termite infestation.

Other Wall Damage From Termites

Termites can do other kinds of damage to your walls. You might be able to see faint “lines” or tunnels visible through the paperboard or drywall. Tapping on the wall and hearing a hollow sound is another sign of wall damage due to termites. You might find baseboards that crumble under little pressure and even bubbling or peeling paint or wallpaper.

Call A Pest Control Specialist

If you are noticing any of these signs of a possible termite infestation, call a pest control specialist. A termite pest technician can easily recognize exit holes and may even be able to show you the termite tunnels leading up to the holes. Let Pest Control Experts help you find the right pest control specialist near you who will do a thorough examination of your walls, floors and ceilings to determine if you have termites and how extensive the damage might be.
