(KMOV) St. Louis -- The biggest threat to your home this season may not be severe storms, but rather termites.
Rita Stubits of Shrewsbury has had her apartment taken over by thousands of the bugs. The termites have likely been in the apartment for a while, but she just spotted them this spring.
Jay Everitt with Rottler Pest and Lawn Solutions said wall cracks, mud trails and blistered areas on the floor are signs of the pest. He recommends a yearly bug inspection performed by a professional.
