Though there are many pests that can invade a home, termites are the most destructive. These pests can quickly consume the wood structures of your home, leaving it destroyed. The sooner termites are detected and removed, the less likely major damage will occur in a home. This is why it is important homeowners are aware of the signs they need to look for so they will know when to call a Trusted Pest Control Team.

*   Unfortunately, many homeowners do not find out they have termites until they begin experiencing damage. If wood flooring suddenly begins to become unstable or walls sound hollow, the home needs to have a termite inspection carried out right away.

  Termites often shed their wings in window sills. These wings resemble the scales of fish and can be found in piles. This is a sure sign a home is infested with termites and should never be ignored.

*   Though not always a sign, seeing mud tube nests on the side of your home or building could mean termites are present. To test whether or not the nest is active, simply break off a part of the tube and observe the nest for a few days. Active nests will be quickly repaired by the colony.

  In the spring months, homeowners may notice swarming colonies of termites in their yard. This may not mean there is an infestation, but it could be a sign termites have entered the home. It is best not to ignore this sign and seek an inspection as soon as possible.

If you have any of these signs, you need to contact a Trusted Pest Control Team. They can come out to the home and conduct a thorough inspection. If termites are found, the home can be immediately treated so the population is removed and damage is no longer occurring.
