After the Rain – Termite Swarmers
The common adage “April showers bring May flowers” is a harbinger of the warm, beautiful season to come. But, spring rains can also signal a not so pleasant arrival: termite season.
Why Termites Swarm
When a termite nest is overcrowded or there is not enough food to support the size of the colony, sexually mature termites with wings leave the nest. Once they find their new dream home, they shed their wings and establish a new colony. The combination of warming temperatures and rain prompt termites to swarm because they need moist soil to thrive, and the newly dampened ground is perfect for termites to begin reproduction. It’s usually difficult to tell if a home has termites. These tiny pests are silent and seclude themselves within your walls and floors where they eat and reproduce. When you see a swarm of termites inside or around your home, it is an obvious sign of two potential dangers to your home:
- Your home is at risk for a termite infestation
- You already have a termite infestation
