Termites are a real menace when they take residence inside wooden structures like homes, decks, trees, or gazebos. Each year termites cause $5 billion in property damage, most of which largely goes unnoticed as termites burrow inside wood often without any external indication that anything is going wrong until it is too late.
Signs of TermitesBecause termites live inside of wood or under ground they can be very difficult to spot. Often there is nothing visible to the untrained eye indicating that termites are eating away at a structure. Look out for wings piling up around windowsills or along the walls. Wood damage can also be an identifying sign of a termite infestation, if you break open a piece of wood and it has small holes tunneling throughout that is a sign that their may be termites present.
