Termites can literally bring the house down when they inhabit the house in a large number of colonies. Often, termites do damage before they are noticed. However, if the homeowner is looking for signs of an infestation they will be able to see a dirt tunnel on the side of the foundation which the termites use to enter the house. This is not the only sign, but it is the most noticeable sign to the homeowner.
Termites will work on eating the wood which supports the house, but they are equally avid eaters of wood in furniture. Homeowners can find themselves setting on a nice piece of upholstered furniture that suddenly starts to weaken at the wooden joints.
Termites living in interiors walls will create a little hole in the wall to use for pushing out their droppings. A little pile of this may be noticed on the floor and then a little hold in the wall above it will be seen. This is a sign that the termites have an active colony in the wall, and there are likely to be other colonies present.
