If you find wood in your home that sounds hollow when you tap it there’s a pretty good chance it is hollow. Termites love the products that we build our homes out of and as you guessed it … Your home is on their menu! Keep a lookout for cracked or bubbling paint and mud tubes on exterior walls, wooden beams or in crawl spaces. Also look for discarded wings. YES, termites have wings and they drop them once they find a good place to nest.
If you think your home has been invaded by termites your best bet is to call a professional pest inspector. They’ll use a combination of probing, tapping and listening techniques to find termites.
