Do you have a suspicion that you might have a pest infestation in your home? Termites are one of the most nefarious uninvited guests that you can find on your property, and even a small colony of termites can cause long-lasting damage to your house’s wood. If you notice any of these symptoms, you might have termites.

  • Flying insects.Oftentimes, the first sign of an infestation that homeowners notice is the termites themselves. Both male and female termites can fly, and they leave their wooded nests to find a mate multiple times a year. If you notice small flying insects in your home, there’s a good chance that they’re termites.

  • A knocking sound coming from your walls. Another sign of termites is a quiet clicking sound coming from inside your walls. Worker termites bang their heads against the nearest object when they believe that a predator is near. Homeowners who have dealt with termites describe this as a small knocking or clicking sound that reverberates from inside the walls.
  •  
  • Tight-fitting doors and windows. Termites as messy eaters! When they consume wood, termites leave behind trails of saliva that can cause wood to warp, making doors feel tighter and windows more difficult to open.
  •  
  • A dead tree on your property. Do you have a felled tree or large branch on your property you’ve been ignoring? It might be hosting a swarm of termites—and from your yard, it’s not difficult for children or pets to unintentionally invite a few bugs inside. Call for emergency tree service in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, or your area of the state to remove the tree. Don’t try to remove it yourself—you could end up getting hurt.
  •  
  • Frass droppings. Termite feces is called “frass,” and termites tend to leave a large amount of frass behind where they tunnel. Look for small black marks and a black powdery substance near your wooden surfaces—these are two telltale signs of frass and, by extension, termites.
