Termite Control Tempe

It’s important that you educate yourself on indicators of termite infestations. If you notice any of these important signs you should immediately contact a pest control specialist. Quite often these signs are indicators of an already advanced infestation.

Here are a few things you should look for:

Termite Droppings (a.k.a. Frass)

Drywood termites create piles of pellets – droppings known as frass. Drywood frass ranges in color due to the color of the wood termites have been eating. All drywood droppings are six-sided.

Exit Holes Left by Drywood Termites

Because of the process in which they feed, Drywood termites construct elaborate mazes and gallery chambers within the walls and furniture in which they nest and feed on. Once a colony has matured it produces reproductive termites. At this stage the workers of the colony create small holes to allow the reproductives to exit the nest. Identifying and locating these holes will allow a professional to address a drywood termite infestation.

Mud Tunnels Left by Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites do not typically leave exit holes. Subterranean termites use their feces, or frass, and saliva as part of the building material for mud tunnels that resemble wormlike tunnels that run up walls or foundations. Instead, homeowners should look near the structure’s foundation for signs of mud tunnels. Because the tunnels are hidden within the mound they are able to protect worker termites as they journey above ground for food.
