Termites can have quite a negative impact on the structure of homes, damage that is often not noticed until a significant amount of it has already been done. They can also squeeze through openings that are as small as 1/32 of an inch. Be on the lookout for branches that touch the side of your home as termites often travel from those branches to the outside of the house and then in through one of those tiny entryways. Also see if any of the paint on your wooden surfaces has cracked. Note that they tend to prefer being in basements and garages due to the higher levels of moisture and the ease of access to wood that exists there, so regularly check those areas.
