Anytime you notice a flying insect that looks similar in appearance to an ant, it could very well be termites. The subterranean termite tends to swarm in the spring and fall months. Most of the time, these critters tend to let their presence be known after a rain and when the sun comes out. The dry wood termite doesn’t normally come around until the hotter months are in full swing and later in summer. If you begin noticing termite pellets, which resemble salt and pepper, you need to do something about it. The pellets are in effect the dry wood frass from the termite.
With the subterranean termite, you might begin noticing a small dirt tube that is coming out of the soil. These termites can end up causing an extensive amount of damage to your property if you fail to take care of them in their entirety. Since a business or home tends to be one of the biggest investments you will ever make, you want to make sure they are protected. By treating the termite problem as soon as you find it, you can save yourself a lot of time, hassle and headache along the way.
