Spring has SPRUNG which means Termites! These nasty little guys cause over 5 billion dollars in damage a year in the United States alone. Mature termite colonies contain about 60,000 to 1 million workers. Here are some of the signs to look for which may be an indication of termites:

-damage to wood (wood may be brittle or make a hollow sound)

-mud tubes (these long tubes are built to provide access from the soil to the food source. When exposed to open air termites die quickly )

-broken wings (typically termite swarmers lose their wings)
