Termites – The Mystery in Your Walls
Have you been experiencing some unusual disturbances within your walls and other wooden fixtures? If so, it may indicate that termites are invading your property. There are a number of different signs to look out for to help you assess whether your home is being attacked by termites. Read on to learn more.
If you hear unusual sounds coming from behind your walls, it might be termites. Normally, as termites are eating and damaging the wood from inside, they move and munch, and the sound can be heard throughout the walls. This sound is very faint but unsettling. These noises are mostly heard at night when your home is silent. Additionally, where there are disturbances to the colony, termite soldiers will alert the rest of the colony by banging their heads against the walls.
No one wants to lay awake at night listen to their home being chewed and chomped. If you suspect you are hearing these noises anywhere in your house, you need to make contact with the professionals, and arrange a termite inspection.
If you haven’t seen termites in real life and notice the white ant-like creatures on any surface around your house, they might be termites.
Many clients often confuse termites with white ants or similar creatures. If you’re confused and don’t see any other signs of wood damage in the house, it is best to get a termite inspection completed on the property to ensure your home does not become vulnerable to attack.
If your wooden walls or other fittings like kitchen cabinets seem papery, flimsy, or hollow, it is likely they have been damaged by termites. Termites eat up the timber from the inside, leaving the wood fittings damaged and hollow. This kind of damage can cause a number of accidents, such as pictures, cabinets and shelves falling off the walls, or even, in some cases, walls collapsing.
To avoid such a situation, call a termite exterminator for effective termite control!
