Signs of Termite Infestation

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably consider termites when you hear the word “infestation.” However, termite damage is a risk that many homeowners are unaware of. Consider the following to help identify if your home is at risk for infestation.

1. Look for signs of structural damage

If you have noticed structural damage to your home, it may indicate a termite infestation. Different types of termites can cause varying degrees of damage to your property. However, all termite damage is preventable with an effective pest control plan.

2. Keep an eye out for hollow sounds

If you hear a hollow sound in your walls or floors when tapped on, this is a sign of an active termite infestation. Hollow-sounding walls are a common indication that termites could infest your home. Termites often cause wood rot in the walls, ceiling and floor of buildings; therefore, it’s important to contact a licensed pest control professional if you notice this damage in your home.

3. Check the wood around your home

Termites feed on wood, so it’s crucial to eliminate any sources of food for them around your property. If you see any signs of decay in the wood around your property, contact a pest control company immediately to address the infestation.

4. Check for mud tubes

Mud tubes are a common indication of termite infestation in homes. They serve as a protective barrier for the termites’ colony, regulating nest temperature and preventing moisture buildup. Identifying these signs is crucial to prevent further damage to your home.

Termites, including household furniture and wood structures, can cause extensive damage to your property. It’s important to schedule regular termite inspections with a pest control company to detect any issues early and prevent significant damage.
