Termite infestations generally occur when subterranean or soil-dwelling termites take up residents in a home or other business structure. While they generally live in the soil, they primarily eat wood. This means that once they find a wooden structure, they quickly communicate this to the rest of the colony.
It is often where the wood meets the ground that they first entered into the structure. Warm weather and consistent humidity make southern residents most likely to experience termite activity.
Termites can often live on your property or inside your home for an extended period of time before being detected. It is often well after the termites have done significant damage before they are identified. Therefore, having a professional company come out to conduct a yearly inspection can save you thousands of dollars in damage.
While it is often necessary to have a professional come out to conduct an inspection, there are some signs that you may be dealing with a termite infestation:
- Discolored or drooping drywall
- Peeling paint that resembles water damage
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
- Small, pinpoint holes in drywall
- Buckling wooden or laminate floor boards
- Excessively squeaky floorboards
- Crumbling or damaged wood
- Stuck windows or doors
- Maze-like patterns in floor boards or walls
- Piles of wings left behind after swarms, often resembling fish scales
- Mud tubes climbing the foundation of your home
- Flying termite swarms anywhere on your property
