Termites, by nature, rarely come into the open and most of the indications of a termite problem are hidden or difficult to see to the casual observer. Although, it is best to have a trained professional inspect your home for termite infestations, there are some things that the typical homeowner may see that would let them know if there is an existing termite infestation in their home.
Signs of a Termite Infestation
- Dead termites on widow sills, around doors or on or near furniture. This is the most common way homeowners find out they have termites.
- Mud tunnels on exterior foundation walls. These are about the diameter of a pencil and are found around the foundation of the house or in the garage.
- Termite Damage. Sometimes homeowners accidentally discover damage by bumping into a damaged baseboard or wooden post and the wood cracks, exposing the termite damage.
Massey Services provides Free Termite Inspections and recommends that homeowners get an inspection at least once every year.
