Termites can cause a lot of damage before you even realize they are there. Termite damage happens within the walls of your home, which makes it tricky for you to notice their presence.
Knowing the signs of termite trouble is the key. Here is what to look for:
- In the spring, termites swarm to mate. They are often found surrounding lights, doors, and vents. Experiencing a termite swarm is the #1 sign that your property has a termite problem.
- Once termites mate, they land and shed their wings, finding shelter such as your home. Look for wings around your home.
- Once termites land and create their colony within your home, the damage may not be apparent for a few years. Termite damage may look like water damage such as buckling wooden floors, swollen floors or ceilings. These signs may also be accompanied by the smell of mold or mildew.
Untreated, termite colonies can multiply and grow. This can happen over and over if not caught in time.
