The first point of recognizing termite infestation in a building is flying swarms of winged
reproductives from the soil or wood. One can’t observe the actual flight. But you can notice
discarded wings which indicate the presence of a termite colony. From the exterior side, you
can’t identify termite damages if any. Because the termites don’t resort to reducing wood to
powdery substances. If there are dry wood termites, then you will notice the powdery substances.
You can recognize the termites if you find earth-like shelter tubes. On the contrary, if you notice
pellets of excreta, it indicates the presence of dry wood termites. Similarly, if you identify the
presence of pellets of partly digested wood, it gives a positive sign about non-subterranean
One more thing that is worth noticing is the fact of hollow sound on tapping structural timber. If
you get it, it indicates the destructive activities of the termites. We at My Termite Company
