More than just pests, termites endanger your most important asset, your home. Both subterranean and dry wood termites can be mistaken for flying ants when they swarm in the heat that follows a period of rain. You’ll see this with dry wood termites in the hot summer months and subterranean termites during fall and spring. A significant indicator that you’re dealing with termites rather than ants is the presence of termite droppings, or frass, which looks like a salt and pepper dusting on wood.
Another important sign is the presence of termite tubes left by subterranean termites. These tubes are made up of what used to be your home’s or business’s wood structure. Quickly detecting and eradicating the termite threat is essential. Unknown and left untreated, a termite infestation can lead to costly repairs or even the total loss of a structure. It’s even better to prevent a termite outbreak in the first place through regular inspection and treatment.
