Have You Seen Pinpoint Holes In Your Drywall? You May Have Termites 

As we go further into the year, the Wildwoods Pest Control team encourages Portland locals to look out for signs of termites in their homes. Typical signs of termites in your home include but are not limited to pinpoint holes in the drywall, paint peeling, drooping/discolored drywall, buckled wooden and/or laminate floors, hollow sounds when you tap on wood, and make-like patterns in your wooden furniture, etc. 

The two types of termites common in and around Portland are Subterranean Termites, which live in the soil, and Dampwood Termites, which infest soft woods. Typically, Subterranean Termites are the more dangerous of the two and more difficult to exterminate.  

Identifying Subterranean Termites 

A reliable way to identify Subterranean Termites is to look for what we call “mud tubes.” These tubes are about as wide as a pencil and lead from the soil to the wood the termites are feeding on. When inspecting wood, you may notice hard fecal pellets that have been left behind in the excavated wood. 

Identifying Dampwood Termites 

These termites differ in that they are larger, redder, and have wings. Sometimes, Dampwood Termites are mistaken for carpenter ants. You can tell the difference by the segments of their bodies. Ants have three segments while termites have two.
