Many times they are visible, but sometimes it happens that they keep eating furniture inside and we cannot even find out. They usually thrive in moist and dark places. They are so harmful that even the most durable furniture gets licked within a few days.
Sometimes they are visible, but many times they keep eating furniture inside. Apart from wood, they also damage the books a lot. If your shelf is kept sticking to the wall, then by now, termites may have made it their home.
So do not let the water freeze in your house walls. Keep the drain and gutter cleaned. Doing so will not cause moisture into the walls. Termites grow only in moist places. Be sure to take care well, especially during the monsoon.
If small holes are seen in your wooden furniture, then understand that it is already attacked by the termites. Also sometimes you will see a wooden powder around your furniture.
