How do you know if you have termites?
There are a few signs you should always be on the look out for. First, look for termite droppings, which usually look like small, wood-colored pellets. Second, keep an eye out for mud tubes on the exterior of your home. Finally, if you notice small wings near an entry point of your home, it’s most likely that termites have taken over. And when termites have taken over, it’s probably time to give us a call.
