Also if you have been noticing bites on your body combined with these other indications you can be pretty sure you have an infestation."

 "We Love Local Realtors!"

How do we know if we have a termite problem?

"Look for blistering or sagging areas in your laminate flooring. Or unexplained cracks in your walls or ceilings as termites consume cellulose that is in timber used in your home. Since termites generally feed on wood below the surface check for hollow sounding wood beams. And also keep an eye out for mud tubes, subterranean termites will build mud tubes to travel around in. Generally on basement or foundation walls."
