Checking for Termites

Q: What is the easiest way to check a home for termites?

A:Termite infestation originates from the soil, so inspect all exposed wood framing near the ground and areas such as crawlspaces. Look for raised, branchlike tubes that contain cream-colored or yellowish insects. Check the intersection of the siding and house foundation for grain-size droppings or tiny dirt clumps next to pinholes. Professionals often use termite bait stations in the ground around the home, which contain wood or other cellulose material to lure the termites and detect their presence. If you spot signs of termite infestation, you should consult a licensed and bonded exterminator to address the problem.
