COMMON SIGNS OF TERMITE INFESTATION
Drywood termite droppings, called frass, may resemble sawdust or coffee grounds and are typically hexagonal in shape. The color varies with the wood type. Some termites use droppings as a defense mechanism, sealing colony galleries from potential intruders. Termite waste can be found in mounds or trails. If a mound of pellets exists, they may be coming from a tiny hole in the area used specifically to eliminate the pellets from galleries where termites dwell.
Swarmers may be seen around stumps, firewood and mulch, as well as other locations. They are attracted to light and can be found near windows, doors, lamps and other exterior light sources. After a swarm, termites usually leave discarded wings, which are often found on window sills and in spider webs. Keep in mind that seeing a swarm is cause for concern but not a guarantee of an infestation. However, if termites are seen exiting from the foundation, walls or porches, that exponentially increases the likelihood of an active infestation.
These dirt-constructed tubes extend over floor joists, support piers, foundation members, walls and the like. The tubes are usually the diameter of a pencil but may be bigger, and contain tiny particles of dried soil. They are used for worker termites to travel from their underground colonies to their feeding grounds, which may be in your home.Tubes can be opened and examined for the presence of worker termites, which are creamy white in appearance.
Hollowed wood usually has a honeycomb interior and a hollow sound. A smooth exterior conceals this telling evidence. Tapping wood with a screwdriver or bumping it with a vacuum cleaner reveals feeding areas either by sound or breakage.
