Unsure of what to look for? Learn about the most common signs of a termite infestation: Shelter Tubes Termites build shelter tubes made out of tiny bits of soil glued together by the termites to connect their underground colony to a cellulose source. Cellulose is contained in paper, cardboard, furniture, picture frames, plywood, floor joists, windows, wall studs, and in a variety of other products. Inside of these tubes they are able to travel to their food source while maintaining a perfect environment for their soft bodies. Shelter tubes may be visible on foundation walls, floor joists, floors and subfloors, siding, wall studs and drywall.Swarmers In the spring, termite colonies produce "swarmers"- the winged adults that fly away to form their own colonies. Swarming usually occurs during the daytime and is simply nature's way of reminding you that termites are nearby. Soon after swarmers take flight, they shed their wings. You may find small piles of wings in spider webs and on surfaces around your home's foundation, on window sills, or on the floor.Wood Damage Subterranean termites damage wood according to a distinctive pattern. These cellulose loving insects can leave nothing behind but the wood grain. Their damage may be hidden inside the walls of a home since this species destroys wood from the inside out. Termite damage also contains mud tubing particles that the termites have carried into the wood for protection from predators and moisture loss.Leading Des Moines Metro Pest Control Service Are you ready to protect your property from destructive pests such as termites?
