- The presence of mud-like material in irregular patterns lining walls and floors.
Termites may excavate the wood so that only a very thin layer of wood is left on the surface of the cavity and the outside. Then this layer is broken; they will cover the holes with mud like material, used to make the tubes. This is a mixture of soil, feces, and saliva.
- The appearance of a swarm that looks like “flying ants.” This indicates a nest may be near.
- Piles of wings: Swarmers shed their wings as they entered their next phase of development.
