WHAT ARE COMMON SIGNS OF TERMITE AND WOOD-DESTROYING INSECT INFESTATION?
Termite evidence typically manifests itself in the form of mud tunnels, or shelter tubes, which some types of termites build and use to conceal themselves as they travel between their nest and their food source. Evidence can also manifest itself in the form of bubbling, cracking or inconsistencies in a wall's paint, wallpaper and wall-covering. Often, evidence of infestation is mistaken for the bubbling and cracking which commonly develops on walls near a leaky pipe or plumbing fixture.
