6) Termites head banging
So you need good hearing for this and you will probably only hear it at night, but when you have a major infestation you can actually hear termites. Some claim to be able to hear them chewing, but it is more likely to hear a faint rapid tapping noise – soldier termites ‘head-banging’ to communicate.
If you spot any of the above signs of termites or even if you are doubt, call a pest professional immediately.
If you think you’ve spotted some potential activity try and avoid digging open their areas of activity and certainly don’t spray them with insecticide. This will only disturb them from the area and not eliminate the problem, making it more difficult for a pest professional to locate the source of the problem and achieve control.
