Signs of a Termite Infestation

If you pull apart the walls of your home, you will notice the tubes they construct to transport food and themselves all around your home. Another sign is the wings of termites. Termites shed their wings and can be a definite sign of your home being infested. Small termites are hard to see but as they grow in size they are easy to see. Animals also react to termites strangely and will avoid areas of the house where they are present in the walls. They are pale in color and are only about ¼ to ½ inch long. The king and queen termites are a little larger, they can get as long as an inch long.
