Damage Signs

Termites quietly threaten homes, causing damage that often goes unnoticed. Prioritize preventive treatment to protect your property. Subterranean termites can harm homes by weakening wood in foundations, walls, and more. Repair costs might not be covered by insurance. The National Pest Management Association reports over $5 billion in annual termite-related property damage in the U.S., stressing the importance of staying proactive to keep your home safe and sound.


These are narrow tubes made of soil and termite saliva that connect the colony to the food source. They are usually found on foundation walls, piers, sills, joists, and other wooden structures. They can also be seen on concrete, brick, or metal surfaces if there are cracks or gaps that allow the termites to enter.


This is the most obvious sign of termite infestation, but it may not be visible until the damage is severe. Subterranean termites eat wood from the inside out, creating hollow spaces and tunnels. The wood may sound hollow when tapped or may break easily when probed. The wood may also have soil or mud inside or around it, indicating the presence of mud tubes.


Termites have a knack for causing damage that goes beyond what's visible at first glance. One of the subtle signs is when paint on walls or wooden surfaces begins to bubble or peel. This seemingly cosmetic issue could be indicative of more profound concerns, as termites often target and weaken the wood beneath the paint. Homeowners should pay attention to such changes in paint condition, as they may reveal underlying wood damage caused by termite activity.


Termite elimination involves a multi-faceted approach to ensure complete eradication and prevent future infestations. Hiring a licensed pest control company is crucial, as professionals can administer targeted treatments such as liquid termiticides or strategically placed bait stations. Focus on moisture control by fixing leaks, ensuring dry soil, and removing wood or cellulose materials.
