Posted on May 19th, 2021 by Knockout Pest

Termite infestations can easily go unnoticed by homeowners. Unfortunately, this can lead to property damage and costly repairs. To prevent this from happening in your home, keep reading to learn about the warning signs of a termite infestation.

Damaged Wood

When you come across a wood structure in your home that seems hollow, you may have a termite infestation on your hands. This is due to the fact that termites gnaw on wood from the inside out. There is no denying that once termites have made your house their new home, they will make their presence known with damaged pieces of wood.


Did you know that drywood termites leave behind small pellets after they’ve chomped on wood? Now you do! If you spot a heap of these pellets in the interior or exterior of your home, drywood termites could have set up shop in your humble abode. 

Bubbling Paint

You may think nothing of some bubbling paint. However, that bubbling paint could be a sign that you have water damage or a termite infestation. Either way, it is important to have this inspected by a professional so the situation can be remedied. 

Do you suspect that you have a termite infestation in your home? If that is the case, turn to the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control for assistance. We can knockout termites and keep them down for the count!
