Signs Of A Termite Infestation
Termites leave several clues to let you know they're in town.
Fortunately, some of these are more obvious than others—so if you do spot any of the following tell-tale signs,
get in touch with your local pest control technicians immediately!
Stuck windows or doors.
Flying termites (aka termite swarmers).
Discarded wings near home entry points—like windows, doors, foundations.
Pencil sized mud tubes, often around your property foundations.
Termite droppings (aka frass), which for obvious reasons, look a lot like sawdust.
A knocking noise coming from the walls.
Damaged, cracked, or blistered wood.
Cracked plaster or paint on your walls.
What Types Of Termites Would You Find In Your Home
Subterranean termites: moving to their food source through mud tunnels, subterranean termites
need moist soil to survive. Their colour depends on their role in the colony. Workers are pale cream, soldiers
are pale cream with a brown head, primary reproductives are black or brown, and supplementary reproductives are
Drywood termites: these termites don't need soil to thrive and can live in wood alone. Slightly
larger than subterranean types (up to 1/2in), drywood termites are dark to light brown and live in smaller
Formosan termites: also soil-borne, these are less common than subterranean termites and look
different too, with a translucent orange colour and longer body.
