Termite Poop

Termite Poop - A Warning Sign

Termite droppings, or frass, appear around the exits of tunnels that termites have bored into wood. Termite poop resembles tiny pellets, and can often be confused with dust. Even if no termites are visible near the termite poop, piles of frass can be a sign of an infestation. The termites don’t actually leave the tunnel to deposit their droppings. Instead, waste is pushed out of the exits holes by workers, creating mounds.

Piles of termite poop are often one of the first signs of a termite infestation, although they are also usually present in cases of a serious termite population. Other signs of extensive infestation include mud tubes, chipping paint and flying termites. Termites swarming are looking to expand into a new colony. Infested wood might also sag, as if it has undergone water damage.

Termites can often cause serious damage to a home if left unchecked. They can burrow through floors, walls, ceilings, or furniture. If signs of termites are present, including termite poop, schedule a professional termite inspection in order to verify whether your house is infested with termites.

To reduce the risk of termite damage, make sure to eliminate standing water and excess moisture, both inside and around your house. Remove dead trees, and store firewood away from the house. Make sure air vents are clean and working properly, as proper airflow can reduce moisture problems.
