Termites are one of the most destructive and insidious pests youre likely to encounter. They cause structural damage to homes that is expensive and difficult to repair. By the time termite damage becomes apparent, it has already become a huge problem.

Often, termites are mistaken for flying ants. At a glance they have a similar appearance, but dont be fooled. Up close (eww, gross) you can tell that termites have straight antennae and four evenly sized wings.

Termites break down the cellulose in wood and use it as their food source. They can occupy dead trees and root systems around your property. They thrive in wood debris and do the most severe damage when they get into your home.

To the untrained eye, signs of termite damage in the wood of your home can resemble that of other less destructive insects. Look for deposits around suspected termite holes. They will leave behind a sawdust like byproduct of their digestion, called frass. Yeah, its basically termite poop.
