How to Check for Termites

Serving the Southeastern United States

Checking for termites in Georgia and Tennessee by Lookout Pest Control

Termites are a major concern for homeowners, and they can cause significant damage if they are not detected and treated early. Doing your own routine inspections around the property can go a long way toward preventing the problem, but you have to know what to look for. At Lookout Pest Control, we have 35 years of experience dealing with termites in the Southeastern United States area, so we know exactly what the common signs of a termite infestation are.

In this article, we’ll talk about how to check for termites in your home.

How Do You Know If You Have Termites?

There are a number of telltale signs of termites. If you find any of these around your property, we recommend contacting a professional termite exterminator as soon as possible:

  • Mud tubes: Termites build mud tubes to travel from the soil to their destination above the surface. These tubes are often found on walls, windowsills, and other areas with moisture.
  • Wings: Termites swarm during the spring and summer, but can happen year round as well. This is the process by which they establish new colonies. At the end of the swarming process, they shed their wings, so if you see piles of wings inside or outside your home, it is a sign you might have a termite infestation.
  • Termite droppings: Termite droppings resemble sawdust and can be taken as a signal that termites are active nearby.
  • Damaged wood: If you see any signs of damage to wood in your home, or you find wood that feels hollow or weakened, it is a good idea to have a professional inspect your home for termites.

Stay Safe with a Professional Termite Inspection

Maybe you do your own routine termite inspections around the house. We strongly recommend it. But even so, it’s no replacement for a professional inspection. Termite inspections require specialized knowledge and equipment to be truly effective as termites often hide in hard-to-reach areas.

A highly trained termite expert from Lookout Pest Control can perform a thorough assessment – and if they come across an issue, they’ll provide tailored recommendations to protect your home.
