Hey…You’re a Termite!

What do termites look like?  Most of us never see them.  These ravenous creatures have been munching away on wood for more than 250 million years, long before people started building their homes from trees.  Don’t confuse flying ants with termites because they do have a similar look, but the damage that they do is very different.

What are some signs that your Chicagoland home may have a termite infestation –

1.  Sawdust near windows and door frames
2.  Mud tubes connecting the nest to the base of your house
3.  Wings that have shed
4.  The wood sounds hollow when you tap on it
5.  Wood that looks water damaged, but has not been exposed to liquid

Make no mistake about it…termites look for a warm place to live this time of year and your home is potentially one of them!  When you see any of the signs that termites may have taken nest in your home call the Chicagoland termite control experts A Complete Pest Solution.  For all of your pest control needs this year just call (630) 464-1542.
