Signs of Termites
Termite Swarms & Termite Wings
All termites swarm at certain times of the year. Subterranean termites often swarm after it rains and it’s warm outside – usually early Fall or Spring. Drywood termites swarm in August and September, usually during very warm weather.
Swarming is the only time the termites leave the shelter of the wood they are infesting. Evidence of swarming is winged termites flying around or discarded wings – often found at window sills or bright sunny areas in your house.
Drywood Termite Droppings / Frass
Granular-sized pellets are common to drywood termites and are one of the most apparent signs of termites in your home. You may find drywood termite dropping at door frames, window sills, hardwood floors, beam ceilings, exterior siding and trim. If it’s wood – they will eat it!
Signs of Termites: Discarded Wings, Termite Droppings & Mud Tunnels.
