It is normal practice to obtain more than one extermination quotation and the client should have the termite species identified.

3 Signs to look for:
Termite Discarded Wings
The first sign to look for is discarded wings. You may not know it but Termites do have wings, they just get rid of them right away. what happens is that they may fly from one colony to another and if they decide that they will stay to build a new home, they actually discard their wings and leave them behind.
An interesting thing you may not know is that termites have very thin skin. They can dehydrate and dry out rather quickly and so they need to live in a super humid environment. Usually in more moist areas will be preferred by termites. The mud tubes are a way of maintaining their humid environment and moving around safely. The mud tubes are around pencil-sized and are often located in foundation areas of your property. Once inside, termites can create thousands of dollars damage within your Sydney home.
More difficult to spot because the termites are within the wood actually eating it. Eaten timbers can weaken the structure of your home. If you notice little tiny holes in timber anywhere it could be a sign of termite activity. Sometimes knocking on the wood to see if it sounds hollow can help. Bowed timber floors can be a sign as well as squeaky floorboards.

A Termite biology
