Serving Vancouver WA | Portland OR | Beaverton OR

Termite Excrement and one termite. termite dung resembles the color of wood. Antworks, serving Portland OR & Vancouver WA talks about signs of a termite infestation.Termites are arguably a homeowner’s worst nightmare. These wood-damaging pests will feed on beams, cabinets, floors, and other wooden elements in your home which can lead to severe structural damage if left unchecked. If you notice any of the following signs that termites are in your home, contact Antworks to help prevent any major damage.

Discarded Wings

Swarmers are reproductive termites. In the spring, they’ll come out, mate, and shed their wings most often near windows and doors. If you see discarded wings near your home, you may have a termite infestation.

Mud Tubes

Subterranean termites build mud tubes so they can travel between their food sources and their colony. Termite mud tubes are about the diameter of a pencil.

Damaged Wood

Termites can easily bore through wood. If you notice damaged wood, tap on it, if it sounds hollow, you could have a termite problem.

Termite Droppings

Termite droppings, called “frass” look like small mounds of dark, sawdust. Drywood termites push this frass out of small holes, generally near the entrances to their nest.

Clicking Sounds

It’s not always easy for homeowners to spot a termite, but you may be able to hear them. Termites will bang their heads against the wall when their colony is disturbed. They’re also noisy eaters, making loud clicking noises while munching wood. If you put your ear close to a wall, you may even be able to hear them.

Hard-to-Open Windows and Doors

Hard-to-open windows and doors are another sign of termites. These tiny pests produce moisture when they feed, causing the wood to warp, impacting how the windows and doors function.

Warped Flooring

In addition to windows and doors, that warping also extends to your flooring. If you have warped or bubbling floorboards, you may want to have your property inspected for termites.
