Termites eat wood from the inside out, which leaves your walls significantly thinner. Walls infested with termites will also blister. You can sometimes hear termites moving within a wall. They make buzzing, clicking and rattling sounds as they travel through wood and eat wood. Swarms of termites around your property are a telltale sign of an infestation. If termites swarm indoors, you likely have active termites in your residence or underneath your structure.
