During a wood destroying insect/termite inspection you find a termite mud stain, what is it? Termites build shelter tubes and if someone knocks them down all that may appear is this stain. Some people will go so far as to wipe it away and pretend that everything will be OK.
A few facts:
- Termites don’t generally go away on their own.
- In many places you must disclose that to a new buyer.
- If their are no drill holes – then no termite was performed – refer to #1.
- It must be noted on the inspection form.
If you find something like this it is important to find a Professional Termite Company to lend you a hand.
