Termite feeding habits

Termites normally feed on naturally-occurring dead plant matter, but will also eat material and substances that are found within your home such as insulation, books, wood, and paper. There are specific signs to look for when checking for termite infestation in your home. One of the most obvious is the appearance of mud tubes along walls, floor joists, concrete foundations, etc. These tubes are a source of shelter and transportation channels. Another sign of the presence of termites is the appearance of tiny holes in your walls, and hollow wooden posts or poles that were once solid.
