Changes in the weather can lead to an unpleasant, and possibly disastrous, discovery: termites. Termite swarming can be triggered by warmth and sunlight that follows a rain. This is most common for subterranean termites in the fall and spring, while dry wood termites will swarm in the hotter months of late summer. Even if they’re not swarming, they can be detected by the presence of frass, droppings, on wood surfaces.
Subterranean termites will make themselves known through the appearance of “tubes” that appear over the areas where they have eaten away the wood. When you see tubes, you’re seeing damage that threatens your home or business. If the damage goes without detection or treatment, it can lead to extensive repairs or the complete loss of the building. Regular inspection and treatment are the best ways to keep termites from destroying your investments.
