5 Signs it’s Time for a Termite Fumigation

5 Signs it’s Time for a Termite Fumigation

No one wants to fumigate their home. It can be expensive, and it means moving out of your house while a pest control company preps and fumigates, then clears your home of fumigants. When a few termites have found their way into your home, you might be able to get away with spot treatments. However, some infestation cases require something more, and that’s where fumigation comes into play. Look out for the most common signs that it’s time for termite fumigation: 

Wings or Frass

One of the first ways termites make themselves known is by leaving their droppings, known as frass, behind. These will most commonly appear near window sills and doors, with an appearance like sawdust in a light or dark hue. You may also find termite wings, which they shed after mating. They tend to appear in the same areas as frass but can also appear around light fixtures around your home. 

Mud Tubes

Mud tubes appear as specks on the walls or foundation. You will likely notice wings or frass before you see mud tubes. However, if you want to find where the termite evidence came from, you can look for these specks. Even if you find a few, you may be able to take care of your termite problem with a spot treatment. However, if you see them in multiple places around your home, it might be time to schedule a fumigation. 

Hollow Walls or Floors

If you knock on the wood around what looks like a mud tube, and it sounds hollow, you’re looking at a serious termite infestation. Sagging floors can also be a sign that termites have taken over. These are signs of significant termite damage that would require a fumigation to treat. 

Spotting Termites

There’s a minute chance that when you physically see termites inside your home, they’re the only termites around. However, they don’t typically interact with people, so if you see several termites, it’s a sign of an infestation. If you suspect you have an infestation, look for termites inside and outside of your home. 

Visible Termite Damage

Another sign that termites have taken over your home is when you start to see signs of visible termite damage. If wooden structures show signs of being eaten through, or wooden furniture looks stripped with no other logical explanation, termites have almost definitely set up camp. A problem this big requires a termite fumigation.
