A drywood termite infestation is contained entirely inside the wood, detection can be difficult for a homeowner. Common evidence of a drywood infestation may include small piles of “frass” (termite excrement) found directly below “kick-out” holes in the wood or the wall above. Other evidence includes live termite “swarmers” (reproductives), discarded wings or visible damage to wood. However, if the infestation is in roof rafters or other areas where physical inspection is not occuring regularly, the colony will continue destroying wood from the inside out until the infestation becomes severe enough to finally be observable.
