Termite Control Mesa

Checking for termites in between inspections does not have to be a time-consuming process. You might actually notice some of these signs before you even think to look for them. Remember that though you might not see anything, it’s still very important that you keep up with your yearly profession inspections, especially if you live in an area known for termites.

Checking for Termites is Easy

Checking for termites is fairly easy, as long as you know what you are looking for. Below you’ll find some telltale signs.

Flying Termites Around Your House

Obviously if you see a termite you’ll be able to tell if there are termites present. But since termites live underground and inside wood, they can be hard to see. Flying termites are a very obvious sign of an infestation. These termites have long translucent wings as well as a long and thin segmented body. They are also light brown or off-white.

Be on the Lookout for Dirt Tubes

Dirt tubes look like tunnels and they are created that termites that burrow as they set up lines of supply from the food sources to the colony.  These dirt tubes look like narrow raised bumps that appear in the dirt. They can also appear as narrow channels made of dirt that are built across solid surfaces including brick or cement.

Damaged Wood Good Indicator of Termite Presence 

Damaged wood, riddled with holes or cracks, is a fairly obvious indicator of termites. Look for wood that has hollow places that have been filled with mud or dirt.
