- Pencil-sized diameter, or larger, mud tubes running across bare concrete or masonry between the soil and any wooden part of your building, inside or outside.
- Thin, small, papery wings, all the same size and shape, 3/8″; to 1/2 ” long, on your windowsill, counter top or floor (especially if it is late spring and there has been a recent rain).
- Thin “bubbled” or distorted areas of paint on wooden surfaces, which feel cool to the touch.
- Any wooden building parts (especially if they are support structures) begin to “sag” unexpectedly
