Signs of Termites
Termites can be recognized in several ways, they include: pellets that look like coffee grounds in a pile deposited by Drywood termites, swarming termites that drop their wings and quickly die almost appearing to be ants, the deposited wings will commonly be found by sources of light such as, lamps, windows and light fixtures.
Subterranean termites can also be recognized by swarms in the late winter or early spring and also may be noticed by seeing mud tubes behind drywall and areas like the interior of garages where the mud shelter tubes go unnoticed.
Subterranean termites are particularly damaging to your home because of the large size of their colonies and their ability to stay hidden in areas behind drywall and other inaccessible areas.
