Signs of a Termite Infestation
So, how do you know if you have termites on your property? To help you identify any particular infestation, here’s what you need to look out for when it comes to termites. If you’re not sure, remember that professionals have all the tools and knowledge to identify the problem for you.
Swarmers – Firstly, noticing swarming termites is particularly problematic because it normally means that the colony is already established. Typically, swarmers are younger termites that vacate the nest in order to establish another colony elsewhere.
Frass – A word you’ll see often when researching termite tenting in Sarasota, we’re essentially talking about droppings that termites leave after eating wood. To the untrained eye, frass can look like sawdust or even just small pellets of wood.
Hollow/Damaged Wood – Generally, termites will eat wood from the inside, which is why people often spot damage so late. If you see damage on the outside of a wooden structure, the likelihood is that they have already gone through the middle. If wood sounds hollow when you knock on it, it’s worth pursuing the idea of termites.
Mud Tubes – Often, termites need protection from predators and the weather as they move between food and nests…enter mud tubes. Shaped like a pencil, it’s worth contacting our brilliant team at Brock 360 if you spot what you think might be a mud tube from termites.
Wings – After mating, swarmers no longer need their wings, so they will shed them. In particular, keep an eye out for discarded wings on windowsills, near windows, and even caught up in spider webs.
Even after this, people can spot termites due to small holes or bubbles/blisters they leave in wood. When it comes to termites, time is of the essence. The sooner you contact Sarasota termite control, the more money you’ll save in the long term from potential damage. What’s more, you can also save yourself some stress from seeing termites and trying DIY solutions that don’t normally work. Whether you need termite tenting in Sarasota, Florida, or a smaller solution, contact Brock 360 today.
