Termite Season is back again……….
Termite season will arrive in just a few weeks. When the weather breaks, the termites will begin to swarm. Swarming is when the new reproductive termites take flight looking for a new place to call home. The termite swarm will usually occur on a sunny, humid morning. Once the termites have swarmed, they find a mate, and attempt to return to the soil to begin a new life. Most of the swarming termites will die. If they swarm inside a house, they die. When they swarm outside, other predators such as birds, lizards, spiders, and other insects will dine on the termites.
Many homeowners ask what they can do to protect their home. The first step is to have a qualified pest control technician inspect the home. Upest offers a discount termite inspection and evaluation. The inspection and evaluation takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on the type and size of home you have. Our technicians are all certified with the State and will provide a detailed report of each inspection, and even photo document any concerns. The next step is to design a game play to protect your home. This could include a treatment of the home or we may recommend having the home checked again in 12-18 months.
Spring is the time termites swarm, so now is the time to have a checkup. If your home has not been properly inspected in the past 2 years, now is the time to act. Don’t wait until you see a problem, be proactive.
