Our team at RZ Termite & Pest Control understands that you care about your home, and we want to help you keep it in the best possible condition. One way we do that is by providing top-notch termite removal services, which will get rid of those nasty insects and stop them from doing any more damage to your wood. When it comes to termite removal, the sooner you catch the problem, the better you can protect your home. To help you spot termite infestations early on, our team has put together this list of three key signs to watch out for–if you see any of them in your home, we encourage you to give us a call so that we can get to work on termite removal as soon as possible.
- Droppings- One sign that you need termite removal is the presence of termite droppings, also known as frass. These will look like small piles of sawdust at first glance, but will reveal themselves to be tiny hexagons upon closer inspection.
- Shed Wings- Another indication that you have a termite infestation on your hands is the presence of shed termite wings. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot this sign before you see any frass, which means that the termites have just made it into your home and haven’t had time to really start chewing up your wood yet.
- Hollow Walls or Floors- A third sign that you need termite removal can be found in the condition of your walls or floors. While termite damage isn’t usually visible until it’s quite severe, you can detect it early by knocking on walls or paying attention to how a wood floor feels under your feet–if the wall sounds hollower than it should or the floor feels thinner or more fragile, you most likely have a termite problem.
