Are termites having a party at your house? As a homeowner, you may not know how to detect a termite infestation. While subtle, there are some signs you can keep an eye out for. These small signs can help you decide whether or not it is time to reach out to the termite treatment Darwin has available.
Windows and Doors Sticking
Don’t be too quick to dismiss a sticking door or window as a seasonal issue. This can actually be the result of termites invading your walls and causing structural damage. Termites feed on wood. The exposed wood surrounding your doors and windows are an easy target. As they burrow through the wood, the boards can warp, making it hard to open those windows and doors.
Damage Under the Walls Surface
Are termites having a party at your house right under your nose? These clever creatures can be eating away at the walls without you knowing it. They can feed under a thin layer of paint or wallpaper without ever being detected. Watch for bubbling paint and peeling wallpaper.
Mud tubes look like veins on the side of your house. They run from the ground up to exposed wood. Termites create and use them to protect themselves from the dry air while traveling from their colony to their food source.
