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.
One of the most visible signs of a termite problem is the appearance of termite tubes. As subterranean termites eat away the wood they leave behind a covering composed of pulped wood and fecal matter. These tube trace a path of destruction that can lead to severe structural damage or even the total loss of the structure. Because your home or business property is one of your most important investments, it’s essential to get the infestation treated immediately.
