Signs of Termites
Atlanta’s Premier Termite Specialist
The first visible sign of termites may be a “swarm” appearing in the spring. If so, then it may only be the tip of the iceberg. Worker termites are active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, foraging for new food sources (wood) and gathering food to nourish the rest of the termite colony: queens, soldiers, reproducers and young.
Other signs of termites may include:
- Pencil-sized diameter, or larger, mud tubes running across bare concrete or masonry between the soil and any wooden part of your structure.
- Thin, small, papery wings, all the same size and shape, 3/8-1/2 inches long, on your window sill, counter top or floor (especially if it is late spring and there has been a recent rain).
- Any wooden building parts (especially if they are support structures) begin to “sag” unexpectedly.
If you’re experiencing any of these signs, a termite exterminator can help. Termite prevention is the key to protecting your property and providing you with peace of mind.
