What are Flying Termites?

Termites are the most damaging pests that exist in your house. If you find flying termites around or inside the house, it is a sign of an existing termite problem in your home or your house may be exposed to the risk of potential termite infestation. 

Termites love to live in humid conditions. That is the reason why we found more termites in summer. Termites are very problematic and have the potential to cause severe damage to your house. These termites feed on the soft interior portion of wood and other wooden building components. Termite infestation can continue for years until the damage reveals itself through cracks or collapse of the building’s wood. Therefore, for the effective removal of flying termites, you should hire professional termite exterminators. 

Signs of Termites infestations in your home

  • Hollowed or damaged wood: Termites love to eat cellulose found in wood. That is why the termites are attracted to wood. If you found hollowed or damaged wood in your house then it might be because of termites. Termites chew wood in search of cellulose present in wood and make holes. This damaged wood causes structural damage to property. Therefore if you find tunnels in wood then it is time to inspect your house for termite infestations. 
  • Tough to open doors and windows: Generally doors and windows become stiff and difficult to open during periods of extreme moisture or heat. But if you find difficulty with your door or windows even in colder months then it might be the result of termite damage. Termites produce moisture in doors and windows while eating wood and cause wood to warp. That is the reason why you face difficulty in opening doors and windows. 
  • Presence of mud tubes in the house: If you found mud tubes near the foundations of your home then it must be because of termites. Termites make these mud tubes to provide moisture to them. So, if you have mud tubes in your house then it is a strong sign of termite infestation. Eliminate a moisture-rich environment from your house to avoid termite infestation. Also stop storing mulch, firewood, and wood chips in houses to avoid termites. 
  • Chewing noises: If you find clicking sound coming from your walls then it is an indication of termite presence in your house. Termites love eating wood, they make cracking sounds while eating.  You can hear these cracking sounds when you put your ear close to any wood infested by termites.
