If you’ve noticed mysterious little piles on the floor of something that looks like sawdust, you might actually be looking at termite poo! The droppings of drywood termites are tiny pellet piles, also known as frass.

Flying Termites and Wings

Seen any strange winged insects in your home? You might have brushed them off as harmless winged ants, but did you know they could actually be termites? Flying termites often swarm around light sources and they drop their wings after mating – so if you see discarded wings on the floor, you could have some trouble on your hands.

Mud Tunnels

A clear sign of termites are pencil-sized tunnels of mud (pictured at top), which will usually be found around the home’s foundation and may be travelling up the outside walls.

We all know the devastating impacts termites can have on the home, so don’t wait till it’s too late – catch a termite infestation early with an inspection from Cap-it-all.
