Termites invade homes by travelling from their colonies in trails to the foundations of your property. Cracks or gaps around pipes, in the mortor are often the point of access for termite entry. Homeowners can also get termites from:
Wooden structures, like porches and decks, in direct contact with the ground
Stacks of firewood that lean against the house
Damp soil near foundations from leaking faucets, gutters, or downspouts
Trees and shrubs planted close to the building.
Above ground locations in the house that remain damp enough to support termites without them needing to return to the moist conditions found in the soil.
Some indications you may have a termite infestation:
A temporary swarm of winged insects in your home or from the soil around your home.
Any cracked or bubbling paint or frass (termite droppings).
Wood that sounds hollow when tapped.
Mud tubes on exterior walls, wooden beams or in crawl spaces.
Discarded wings from alates
