Termites often leave some evidence of their presence. Look for small holes in wood, crumbling drywall, or sagging doors or floors. Insect wings are another sign, as termites shed their wings when they swarm. Look, too, for the shelter tubes termites build to serve as their passageways across masonry or along pipes.

Sometimes people mistakenly identify termites as "white ants" when they see them swarming. Like ants, subterranean termites live in the ground and often move in a file, but there are differences and it's important to know them.
Both ants and termites have two pairs of wings, but ants' wings are different
sizes while the termites' wings are all the same size. Also, ants have narrowed
waists and elbowed antennae while termites have thick waists and short, straight
antennae that resemble strings of beads. Don't be fooled by color or size. Ants
can vary in size, and winged termites can be brown or black like ants.
Only a certified Pest Management Professional such as Pest Shield can perform a thorough termite inspection, the first step toward termite control.
