Termites are devastating to homes and other structures, they destroy over $5 billion worth of property every year, and they’ll eat just about anything!

Termites are secretive, destructive little creatures that can wreak havoc. Add this to the fact that they are difficult to detect because they hide while doing their munching, homeowners don’t always realize that their home or building have been infested until it's too late.

Termites feed on cellulose which is normally found in all wooden structures, but their diets are more varied than that. They will chew through sand and clay along with plaster or anything that has cellulose in it like cotton cloths paper and carpets.

Tips For Determining Termite Activity On Your Property

There are a number of signs that termites might be present. By keeping an eye out for these clues, you may save yourself a whole host of future problems;

  • Discolored or drooping drywall - Sometimes termites make small holes in the drywall paper. Subterranean termites use soil to fill these holes, drywood termites do not. If you notice small pin-sized holes, its time to schedule a termite inspection.
  • Peeling paint that resembles water damage - For protection, termites live just below the surface of the wood. As termites need moisture, the termite galleries will contain moisture, brought by the termites. As any painted surface which has moisture behind it will react, the painted surfaces adjacent to termite infestation may peel or bubble.
  • Small, pinpoint holes in drywall - These are exit holes are small markings in wood, drywall and other building material that are created by certain types of termites just before mating season.
  • Crumbling, damaged wood - Termite damage can leave wood looking wavy or with areas that appear to be hollowed out.
  • Blistering or hollow-sounding wood - Blistering or hollow-sounding wood can also be a sign of termite activity. Termites usually consume wood from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or just the paint. When you knock or tap on an area that has termite damage, it will sound hollow or papery.
  • Maze-like patterns in furniture, floor boards or walls - These maze-like patterns in the wood are an indication that termites could be burrowing just below the surface, which is most common for drywood termites. They not only eat the wood but build colonies within it too!
  • Mounds of drywood termite pellets, often resembling small piles of salt or pepper - Mysterious piles of pellets are indicative of drywood termite presence. These piles are the droppings, know as frass.
  • Flying termite swarms anywhere on your property - Swarmers are usually one of the first signs of a termite infestation. Swarmers are winged termites that emerge from nests in large groups. These flying termites are the males and females that have left the nest to find a suitable mate — which could be near or in your home.
