It’s best to always have your home inspected occasionally each year by a local professional company. But on top of that you need to keep you eye out for clues that you might have termites in your home. Some of the most common things you might see are mud tunnels on inside or outside of your foundation, small hole or tubes in any wood in and outside your home, and a sawdust like powder by any of your doors, windows, or garage. Other obvious signs include seeing termites dead or alive or flying around, and finding termite wings near doors, windows, and garage areas.
