3 Signs You Need Immediate Termite Treatment, Wahiawa, Hawaii

Termites are tricky, little pests. Often, they can invade your home, eat through your wood from the inside out, and take off before you even realize they were there. That’s because it isn’t always easy to determine when you have a termite problem in the first place. 

To keep your home safe, keep an eye out for the following three signs that you need termite treatment

  • Discarded Wings: One sign you have a termite infestation is if you see discarded wings in your home. Termites are a lot like flying ants, and they often leave wings when flying around your house. If you haven’t seen any termites yet, but there are small wings deposited on your windowsills and countertops, you likely have an infestation. 
  • termite treatmentMud Tubes: When termites burrow into a home searching for food, they leave clues behind them, like mud tubes. Mud tubes are small tunnels traveling from their main colony to food sources, and they are constructed out of pieces of wood, mud, and soil. If you crack them open and there are active termites inside, you need immediate termite treatment. 
  • Hollow Wood: Termites eat wood from the inside out. As such, wood that appears structurally sound can actually be severely damaged on the inside. You can identify such pieces of wood by tapping them lightly with a screwdriver and listening to the sound it makes; if it sounds hollow, these pests are present.
