Termites are destructive wood-eating insects that cause millions of property owners in Johannesburg untold frustration and expenses each year. When active nests are found on a property, it can seem like the worst-case scenario, but it isn’t. The worst-case scenario is when you don’t even know that you have an infestation in your home. It can be devastating to a property’s value, especially if left untreated or if you try to put the home on the market.

There are many specific termite species, with signs of infestations varying slightly by different species. However, there are telltale signs that your home is infected, and keeping an eye out for these signs can help termite control along. One species of termites nests in soil and needs protection from the elements when invading your property. Thus, they build mud tubes over exposed foundations and use these structures to travel to the wood structures inside your home.

Finding dried mud tubes is a rather solid indication that your home is being eaten inside out by termites. Another sign that your property is infested with termites is when winged adults swarm around the property. These weak flyers are dark brown and have two almost identically sized wings. Don’t let an infestation reach critical proportions, get professional termite control in Johannesburg, before too much damage is inflicted on your property.
