How To Tell If You Have Termites On Your Gilbert Property

Termites are a difficult pest to detect. They aren’t called “silent destroyers” for no reason. Termites are most likely to start their dangerous journey through your home in areas you don’t often look or cannot see. This makes termite detection challenging.

Early detection is very important

Unfortunately, early detection and treatment are critical to ensuring a termite infestation doesn’t spread and do major damage. Alert homeowners should be on the lookout for the following signs of a termite infestation:

  • Windows and doors that are hard to open or close or feel “stuck”
  • Paint that appears bubbled
  • Peeling or discolored wallpaper
  • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
  • Mud tubes on the exterior of your home
  • The presence of termite swarmers or discarded wings, usually near windowsills or doorways
  • Termite droppings, which look like sawdust piles and are usually found near small holes in walls
