Look for mud tunnels that run up the side of the foundation or on support beams. These tubes will look like lines of dried mud. Termites travel through these tubes to and from the colony. Another sign you may have termites is seeing a pile of discarded wings in windowsills or near the home. Termites swarm in the spring and shed their wings. If you see these in or near the home you may have termites. Termites eat wood from the inside out, so you won't see signs of them just by looking at a support beam or section of wood in your house. Tap the wood to listen if it makes a hollow sound which may indicate damage. Termites often leave droppings that resemble sawdust piles. These droppings may indicate any nearby wood is infested with termites.</p><p>Whether you're a buyer or a seller, if you see these signs, get a termite inspection to get it in writing.<br/><br/>For all your real estate needs.<br/><br/>Jinger Knox<br/>85 and Sunny Real Estate<br/>[Contact information removed by Zillow Moderator.
