How do I know if I have Subterranean Termites?
The first sign of the presence of this pest is their mud tubes. These insects only travel through these tubes. You will commonly find these mud tubes on the ground level or crawlspace area of your home. They are commonly found around the hot water tank or next to the baseboards in the ground level of the home. These tubes are made of granular dirt and or sand. When you disturb these tubes you may be able to see opaque white grubs, these are the worker termites. Another sign that these insects are infesting your home is the presence of flying reproductives. The reproductives are quite small and black with wings that are twice as long as the body. They resemble small flies and are commonly mistaken for flying ants.
