What Are Signs Of Subterranean Termites?

Subterranean termites can be identified by several factors:

  • During the warm seasons of spring and summer,  subterranean termites swarm as part of their mating routine. Often occurring in the morning or night, these little pests might be mistaken for flying ants. Only fertile females and males can grow wings and swarm to find a mate. Once the mating has finished, these termites lose their wings. From here, they crawl into cracks and crevices to begin new colonies. Wings along windowsills or floorboards can be a sign of infestation.

  • Because Subterranean termites live underground,  they build mud tubes or tunnels to transport food, in their case, wood, to the ground. These tubes are used to keep them protected from predators and the elements. Their bud tunnels run along walls and nearby trees. Spotting these tunnels usually means infestation.

  • Structural damage and weak walls or flooring are sure signs of advanced subterranean termite activity in your home or business. If you notice sagging walls and floors, blistering paint, and/or hollow-sounding surfaces, it’s time to call in the professionals.
