We have been getting a lot of Termite calls already for the 2019 season pest control season
Tomorrow we have a big termite job in Northbridge, Ma. The homeowner called because they were seeing ants.
We went out to the home for an ant treatment and discovered that there was really bad termite activity in the basement of the home.
<——– Worker Termites
The homeowner actually saw some suspicious activity in the basement but they were not sure what caused it. What they saw in the basement was one of the number one signs of termite activity, and that is the presence of termite mud tubes.
Termites workers always need to have moisture so what they do is bring mud from the soil with them as they attack the wood of the home. Therefore, if you see mud tubs, you have active termites or you have had them in the past.

The other sign of termite activity is the presence of Termite Swarmers. The swarmers are the reproductive termites that are swarming in order to mate. They look like flying ants so if you do see any insects that look like flying ants that drop their wings – make sure to call us right away at 774.321.0478
The other sign of termite activity is evidence of damaged wood. But once again you should call a professional for help on this because we see a lot of trained home inspectors and they routinely misdiagnose termite damage from carpenter ant damage and/or wood rot.
