It’s easy to mistake termites for flying ants, but it could be a costly one. Similar to ants, termites occasionally swarm when the sun comes out following a rain. Subterranean termites are more likely to do this in the fall and spring, while dry wood termites prefer to swarm in the hot summer months.
Unlike ants, termites leave droppings, pellets with the appearance of salt and pepper, behind on wood. They can also do extensive structural damage to your home.
This damage is often visible in the form of termite tubes. These tubes are created by the detritus and fecal matter left behind by subterranean termites and they eat away the wooden portions of your home or business.
More than just marring a building’s appearance, left untreated, termites can severely weaken a building’s structure. Repairs can be costly. Delays in treatment can also leave to the total loss of your home or business property.
