Let’s take a moment to observe and talk about the most common ways to notice termites early.
Stuck windows or doors
If you have started to notice sudden changes on your window and door frames, like difficulty in closing and opening them or finding dirt like substance around- it could possibly be an early sign of termites as termites tend to target moist or decaying wooden areas that are readily available.
Damage under paint or wallpaper
If you are noticing damage under the wallpaper of your walls or paint, then this is one of the earliest signs of termite infestation. Termites tend to create mud tunnels while eating away the wooden paneling underneath the walls.
Discarded wings and swarmers
One of the most significant signs of an active termite infestation is discarded wings and swarmers near the doors, windows, or plumbing areas. Termites leave their discarded wings around the door frames and windows when they are ready to swarm and harbor a new location.
Termites create mud tube colonies as they make themselves comfortable in your home. These mud tubes can be easily seen on the grounds connecting to the wooden areas; these mud colonies help termites to protect themselves from the dryness in the air as they build their shelter.
Another sign you should look for is termite droppings, also known as frass that you can quickly notice around the house. These droppings are pellet-shaped and wood-colored that appear as wood dust.
