If you are a careful listener, or have a curious pet, you may hear the noise made by termite infestations. The noises can sound like rattling, clicking, rustling or buzzing. These sounds are created when termites are traveling through wood, searching for food.
Soldier termites can make a very loud sound called head banging. They do this when they are disturbed or threatened. They hit their heads against walls and it makes a rattling sound. Worker termites make rustling and clicking sounds using their mouth as they work through wood. You could potentially also hear swarming or buzzing from flying termites in the Spring, during mating season.
Sounds can be used to find termite infestations. Termites tunnel through wood behind walls, under floors or in ceilings, which creates a hollow space in the wood. When you tap infested wood, it makes a specific and distinct noise. Advantage Pest Control are your termite experts in Toronto! We can inspect your home for any termite infestations!
