How to know if you have a termite problem.

How to know if you have a termite problem.

Here are 5 ways to know if you have termite problem in your house

1.      A reproductive swarm

Experiencing a reproductive swarm inside your house probably mean there are some termites. A reproductive happens when a large number of winged insects emerge from the ground , typically on a warm day in spring or early summer.

2.      Hallowed out wood

Termites eat wood from the inside out, if you are conducting an inspection and come across this, it’s a sign of termites.

3.      Mud tunnels

Termites build tunnels to travel from their nest to the wood, (typically the wood in the house)

4.      Tight fitting doors and windows

The moisture the termites produce when eating and tunneling through the door and windows frames causes wood to warp, making it hard to open doors and windows.

5.      Frass/Termite droppings

Unlike subterranean termites dry wood termites don’t use their feces to build their tunnel, instead they push it out of small holes near the entrances of their nest,
