- Termites are found all over East Tennessee, and can do major damage to any building or structure.
- Food: Termites eat wood, usually fallen logs and stumps on the forest floor. They often eat wood from the inside out, making their activity in your home largely undetectable until it’s too late.
- Where to look: Termites need moisture, so they can be found below your home. They build mud tubes that can cross concrete, brick, cinder block, metal, pre-treated wood and some chemical barriers.
- Signs of an invasion: A temporary swarm of winged insects near or inside the building, discarded wings near doors and windows, mud tubes in the basement or crawl space, hollow-sounding wall studs and unexpected sagging in wooden buildings.
