TALLAHASSEE, FL - As we approach the summer months Brian Lipford, Customer Service Manager of Arrow Exterminators, says it's important to get termite inspections now.

Some possible warning signs of a termite infestation are termite wings which are thin, papery wings and typically found near window sills or floors. mud tubes built by termites to connect them from the soil to their food source.

Distorted areas of paint or wood surfaces which appear "bubbled" or cracked. hollow-sounding wood around the home and termite droppings is a sign of dry-wood termites and has a hard, gritty feel to it.

Arrow exterminators suggests removing old logs from front and back yards, keep tree branches and shrubbery well-trimmed and away from the house and lastly reduce humidity in crawl spaces.
