Identifying Termites by Sight
One of the most common signs of infestation in your home or commercial property is flying termites. These airborne insects are called termite swarmers and are common during termites’ reproductive cycle. When you see one or two, chances are an infestation is not in full swing, but there may be a mature colony preparing to swarm nearby. These termite swarmers are absolutely harmless. They do not sting or bite and are not poisonous. However, they likely come from a larger colony looking for food, moisture, or a new place to call home. When you discover hundreds of these flying termites, the best course of action is to contact us for a free home inspection and treatment right away. We can assess the colony’s size and the right products and options to clear up your infestation and keep them from returning to feed on your structure.
Common Warning Signs of Termite Infestation
Identifying an infestation by witnessing hundreds of flying insects swarming your interior is the simplest way to know you have an infestation. But what happens when termites penetrate your structure underground through the soil, concrete, masonry, or foundation? There is little to no evidence of their passing, and, by then, it could be too late. In addition to swarms of flying insects inside your home or commercial building, there are common, additional signs you can look for to confirm you have a termite infestation:
- Sandy Piles of Termite Droppings called “Pellets”
- Brown Hollow Mud Tubes on Walls
- Discarded Termite Wings
- Brittle or Buckling Wood
- Wood Bubbles
- Head Banging or Chewing Sounds
- And more
Where to Look for Signs of Termites on Your Property
Verifying you have a termite infestation is never an enjoyable experience. If swarmers and worker termites are present, it means you will have to take immediate action, at cost, to eliminate dangerous property and termite damage before it gets worse. The good news is, in addition to the most common signs of termite infestation, there are many different places termites target throughout homes and businesses first due to the presence of softwood and high moisture levels. These areas include:
- Air Conditioning Units
- Wooden Beams
- Storage Boxes
- Wooden Flooring
- Wooden Furniture
- And more
What Does Termite Damage Look Like?
You may not see swarmers right away in your residential or commercial property, as they seek out places where moisture and softwood are ever-present. However, you can tell you have an ongoing infestation by regularly checking your interior for any property damage. Wood is a termite’s primary food source. Termites feed and house their colonies by tunneling through wooden structures and will never stop eating through those sections of your structure where softwood exists. This can include window frames, siding, flooring, railings, porches, and decks.
Unfortunately, you may not notice termite damage until it is extensive. Termites do most of their subterranean traveling and borrowing through interior tunnels in wood. The only indicators they were there can be droppings, brown tube-like tunnels called mud tubes, or damage akin to wood rot or water damage. Without proper inspection and treatment, your structure may sag, blister, or even crumble under the weight it can no longer support. Your best course of action is expert treatment options from MightyMite Termite Services. We will provide you with a free, onsite consultation, explain all damage and infestation levels, and give you the information you need to end it permanently with treatments that do more.
