What Do Termites Look Like?

If you notice a weird and thin tube-shaped mud or sawdust somewhere in and around your house, it may be signs of termite infestation. Termites look similar to ants; however, there are very minute differences that only a trained eye can detect. There are four types of termites, namely – Subterranean Termites, Dampwood Termites, Drywood Termites, and Formosan Termites. Furthermore, they are also categorized according to their tasks, like the Queen, King, Soldiers, Workers, and Swarmers. Also, each type of termite has a different structure.

The length of a termite varies from 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. The largest are the Queens and the Kings that may grow up to 1 inch long. The flying termites are the ones that reproduce and have two sets of wings. Identifying the type of termite is very crucial to terminate them effectively.

Where Are Termites Found?

Knowing the signs of termite infestation at the beginning can help in getting rid of them permanently. However, before you spot a termite, there are more chances of you to find the signs. Some possible signs are:

  • Termite droppings that can be seen near doors and windows. They appear like sawdust.
  • Mud tubes around damp places, especially where there is water leakage, like garages and basements.
  • Blisters in drywalls or wooden furniture.
