One of the most frustrating problems a homeowner can face is a termite infestation. These bugs can cause major damage to decks, siding, structural members, or many other parts of the home. If you worry that you may have termites, contact a St. Louis Termite Exterminator immediately. This way, you can prevent further damage and get rid of the problem before it becomes too serious.
Signs of Termites from a St. Louis Termite Exterminator
Most termite damage is below the surface and is never seen. One of the first signs a person has is knocking on wood and having it sound hollow. Since termites live within wood, they eat from the inside out. Wood should have a firm, solid sound when tapped. If there is a hollow sound, contact a St. Louis Termite Exterminator right away.
Another sign that you may have a problem are swarms of winged termites which sometimes appear in the infested home. If you have winged insects in or around your home, try to trap one and preserve it in rubbing alcohol for an exterminator to examine. This is an almost sure sign of an infestation and by showing the insect to a qualified professional, they can find the right treatment to get the home free of these pests.
