Termites and Your Home

Termites and homes

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the damage caused by termites is billions of dollars each year, and in order to treat them, property owners spend more than two billion dollars. While it is a major problem, most people are unaware that there is a termite infestation in their home. They are typically only discovered if a homeowner sees a swarm of termites or they came across termite damage while doing construction.

Noticing the Signs of Termites

Because termite damage can go undetected until major damage has occurred, it is extremely important that you know the signs of a termite infestation. These signs include, but are not limited to:

  • Wood that sounds hollow
  • Doors and windows that are stuck
  • Overly squeaky floors
  • Piles of discarded wings from termite swarms
  • Pin-sized holes in your drywall
  • Loosening tiles
  • Drooping drywall
  • Floors that buckle
  • Termite swarms
