How do Termite Mud Tubes look like?

Updated: May 13

Firstly termites and mud tubes go hand in hand. Termites create mud tubes for various reasons which we will discuss in the next blog. Termite mud tubes are brown in color and made out of soil which they have regurgitated.

Mud tubes are about the thickness of a drinking straw or pencil and look like encrusted, dried dirt

Mud tubes can either be damp or dry depending on the termite activity. If the mudtube is dry, it could be a sign that the termites are no longer active at that spot. If the mud tubes are damp, it's a sign that termites are actively building the tracks.
