Look (And Listen) For These Hard To Spot Signs Of Termites
Noisy Walls – If you think you’re hearing something in the walls, it may be termites. Soldier termites are known to hit their heads against the wood to warn the colony of approaching danger. This creates a clicking sound that can be heard in your home.
Sticky Windows – Have you had trouble getting your doors and windows open because they’re sticking? You may think it’s just moisture warping the wood, but in fact, it could be a sign of termite infestation. As termites eat the wood, it causes it to decay and become misshapen, thus creating the problem of a sticking entry or window.
Piles of Dirt – Termite droppings have a tendency to get vacuumed up without a thought. If you’ve noticed that there seems to be more debris in your home lately, take a closer look. If there are piles of what looks like sawdust on the floor, you probably need a termite exterminator.
White Ants – It’s not uncommon for people to mistake termites for ants. If you notice what you think are unusual looking ants, then contact a termite exterminator to take a look. Termites and ants often share the same environment, especially if it’s a moist environment.
