That said, here are a few indicators that could tell that termites infest your house.

Swarms do not differ much with the flying ants. Usually, you will find them moving around during the day and most likely on a warm weather after a rainy spell. Coming across swarms around your environment may not call for so much attention, however, if you notice a swarm inside your house then know it is time to have a thorough check and outsource pest eradication services.

Discarded wings

If you are not observant, or you spend very little time in your home, you may never notice a swarm. Ideally, they do not leave a mark behind. However, a discarded wing is an indicator that you have a swarm around your home. With the notice of such, scrutinize all sensitive areas such as windowsills, floors and at the foundation of flat surfaces. In case, you come along piles of wings there is no doubt that your house has termite infestations.

Mud tubes

This is another alarming sign. Ideally, most termites find shelter in mud tubes. The pencil- widths like structures (mud tubes) are made using fecal matter, wood, and soil. Termites will construct the latter beneath a colony and a plank of wood to feast on. As such, do not hesitate to contact a pest eradication expert with the notice of such.

Hollow woods

aaScaSASMost termites will hide in dark areas and humid environments as such, if you are not observant, it would be hard to note their presence. However, after a short period, they will have already eaten an entire log of wood leaving it hollow. This is a clear indicator of termite infestation.

Damaged wood

Many homeowners will not notice wood damage unless they are having home renovations. This is unfortunate as it calls, for extra repairs. To be on the safer side, it is key to employ a tapping test on a regular basis. In this test, you tap the wood after every few inches with a screwdriver. If you hear a hollow sound, then this clearly, show that there is pest infestation.
