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.
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.
