Signs of Termite Infestation
Mud tubes on wall
Subterranean termites build shelter tubes made of mud, dirt and debris in order to travel to and fro the food source without being seen. These tubes are about the size of a coin and are usually found on exterior and interior walls leading up to the entry points of the building.
Papery or hollow sounding timber
Termites usually consume woods from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or paint. So when you knock or tap on an area that has termite damages, it will sound hollow or papery due to parts (or all) of the timber having been eaten away.
Tunnels in the wood
Also known as 'galleries' which are quite difficult to see from the outside.
Sightings of termite swarmer (flying termites) or discarded wings
Usually the first sign of infestation noticed by property owners are the presence of swarmer or alates. Another common indication is the remnants of discarded wings on windowsills and floors. While they may quickly disappear after they found their mating partner, the identical and disembodied wings are sure signs of an indoor termite swarm.
Tight fitting door or hard to open window
As termites devour timber, their excrement or ‘mud’ creates a protective environment that traps heat and moisture. This causes timber to swell, making it harder to open or close the infested windows and doors.
After consuming wood, dry wood termites often leave behind brown-coloured and grainy faeces mounds. These faeces pellets are usually found beneath the infested wood.
