Termite evidence is visible to the naked eye, but by the time the human eye detects damage, the damage runs much deeper than you can see.

Termites start their dining feast of wood from deep inside the wood, undercover and out of sight.  The more educated you are on termite activity, the quicker you can have the problem treated.

Ways to Determine Termite Evidence

As you begin your search for termites here are some early clues that termites have invaded your space which can include:

Paint discoloration or blistering, something that looks like water damage, can possibly be on indicator that termites are present.  Where  termites evidence, there is moisture because termite saliva is used when they eat and also to create the tunnels they use for travelling safely.

  1. Wood that has the look of a honeycomb has definitely been eaten and invaded by termites.
  2. A good place to begin looking for termites is anywhere that water damage has occurred due to a leak.  Termites are attracted to moist wood.  Storerooms and cupboards that are not used very often will be other places that will need to be inspected.

Check outside your home and in the garden for further evidence.  Fence posts made of wood are an ideal spot for termites to feast as are the base of trees, wood piles and tree stumps.  It will be difficult to identify termite activity outside your home, but you want to look for very small mud tubes (also called “leads”) which are erected by termites as a way to travel safely.  These “leads” will start from the ground and will lead to any tiny crack in the foundation of your home.

There is no reason to panic if you find evidence of a termite invasion, and don’t see any of these destructive pests.  It could be old damage and the remaining evidence was not destroyed or removed.  I would not want to make that assumption, and since there has been evidence that termites have been or are still close to your home and property, a call to your professional pest controller would be in order at A1 Pest Control.

There is no price tag on your “peace of mind”, call an expert who can determine if termite evidence in the home still exists, and uses state of the art equipment to inspect and get rid of them forever.
