In the meantime however, between pest inspections, you can be on the lookout for the beginnings of termite infestations.
3 things to look for
On the outside of your home, you might notice little mud tunnels in a vein-like pattern. These tunnels allow the termites access into your home and are made of termite saliva, feces mud which are the width of a pencil. Termites need certain conditions to survive and these tubes control the humidity and temperature so they are comfortable.
If you see piles of wings, this means that termites have been swarming. When termites swarm and fly off to start a new colony, they intentionally twist their wings off since they will not need them anymore. If you find bunches of insect wings lying around near these mud tubes, you most likely have an infestation.
This is sometimes easy to spot but unless you know what you’re looking for, you could miss it. Small sawdust piles, tiny holes in wood or buckling paint mean that termites are doing damage.
