Most pest control specialists agree that you should get a termite inspection once every two years to ensure that there are no signs of termites in your home. But when signs of infestation pop up, no matter how long it’s been since your last inspection, you need to enlist the help of professionals. Here is what to look out for.
You Notice Blisters in Wood Flooring
Blisters in your hardwood flooring could be indicators that termites are feeding and nesting below the surface. Of course, if your floor is older and has experienced some water damage, it could turn out to be nothing, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you notice blisters in your wood floor, you should get a termite inspection right away.
You Notice Damaged or Hollowed Wood
If you notice damage on your wood floors, furniture or other wood elements in your home, it could be from termites. It’s easy to overlook little marks on wood surfaces, but over time, termites will leave more and more damage. This is true for hollowed wood as well. Termites will chew through wood and will make their homes inside of thick pieces of wood. If you notice small holes in furniture and see that the wood is hollowed out, you should get a termite inspection right away.
You Notice Termite Droppings
You should be aware of what termite droppings look like so if you see any, you can bring in the specialists. Generally, termite droppings look like small grains of rice and range in color from tan to brown to black. They can be easy to overlook and are easily confused with crumbs and food debris. You should always look for termite droppings near a wood, as this is a sign you should get a termite inspection.
