Termites are among the worst kinds of infestations homeowners can have. These pests can cause tremendous damage to homes, which makes it important for homeowners to know the signs of an infestation. If you notice any of the following signs of subterranean termites, it’s time to seek help from professional termite control NJ services.
Subterranean termites usually won’t make their home inside yours, but they will travel back and forth from their ground nest to your residence while foraging. If you see tubes in your home that have a muddy appearance, this can indicate that you have subterranean termites. These tubes make it safe for termites to forage. Keep in mind that these tubes can be hard to spot, but you will typically find them in certain areas, such as concrete foundations and walls.
Wood damage isn’t always easy to see, but some signs include dark spots or blisters in wood floors. You can check for other areas of damaged wood from termites by tapping surfaces and listening for a hollow sound.
The presence of swarmers means you have a termite infestation. You might see these winged termites around doors, windows and light fixtures. Swarmers, which fly out of nearby mud tubes, might also leave discarded wings behind.
