Regular checking for termites should really be done so that you will not ever have to deal with them and that, you will not have to worry about the damages that these pests can cause.

So here are a few things that you should check during termite inspection.

1. See if there is any evidence of swarmer living in your house.

Swarmer termites are one those termite families that could be living in your house. These are winged termites that fly around for a short time. If you see some tiny wings in your house then there might really be swarmer termites in your house. But you do not have to panic right away or call for professional pest inspector help right away since there are also winged ants that are quite identical to swarmer termites. But these two insects have different colonies and so you should first see where the colony is to be able to tell which insect is living in your house. If it is just ants, then you can just easily eliminate them but if it is really swarmer termites, then call for a professional help to deal with the problem.
