Warning Signs of Termites In Augusta

February 5, 2022

With the warmer weather coming our way, or even here already, we can expect some of the pest problems we face to change, as well. Now that winter is heading out the door, many of the rodent problems you may have dealt with during the colder months are being replaced by the insect pests that tend to start popping up as the seasons change from cool to warm. Unfortunately, termites are one of the species of insects that begin springing up again. In Augusta, they are often even more of an issue for homeowners and business owners alike.

Georgia doesn't get too cold in the winter, either. This means more termite colonies living outdoors can survive the winter, which leads to several more termite swarms as soon as the weather gets warmer again. Swarmer termites have started breaking away from their mature colonies to spread and create satellite colonies, and there's a high probability that your home is on the market for their next location.

Identifying Signs Of Termites In Your Augusta Home

In order to keep yourself and your Augusta home protected, understanding what signs to look out for when it comes to termites is incredibly helpful:

  • Swarmers: If you are seeing clouds of insects swarming outside or around your home this spring, those insects are most likely termites, not ants. Because mature colonies like to spread to new areas, seeing termite swarmers in or around your home could be a strong indicator of a termite infestation.
  • Shed wings: Termite swarmers will shed their wings when they have found a location where they wish to set up their new colony. If you see any shed wings on your window sills, around your doorway, or around the exterior walls of your home, chances are, termites have invaded.
  • Frass: Frass is the mixture of dirt and termite waste that termites will push out of their tunnels. Finding these piles next to a tiny hole indicates that you have found one of the entrances that they push their waste out of.
  • Damage within your home: If you've recently started having trouble opening windows and doors without them sticking, seen floorboards bowing, and have noticed cracks along your walls and ceiling, it is a clear sign that termites have invaded and have already done some damage.

If you suspect you have a termite problem, it's important that you get in touch with a pest professional right away. The earlier you can solve a termite problem, the better.
