What causes the nails to pop out of the ceiling?

Nails in the drywall in the ceiling are pushing out, don't know whats causing it and how to prevent it from happening.

    Nail popping on dry wall ceilings and walls are caused by several things.

    One being termites. As they destroy the wood members the nails loose their ability to grip the boards thus begin to loosen

    Most of the nails that loosen are from vibration in the house and there is no way to stop it unless you use sheetrock screws which is the best way to secure sheetrock to walls and ceiling.
