Spring is Prime Termite Season
Spring usually brings to mind budding flowers and singing birds. But, for homeowners, it also signals the beginning of prime termite season.
Spring is when termites emerge from their nests to mate and swarm in search of a location to establish a new colony. Swarming always occurs when the weather begins to warm and after significant rain. They are on the lookout for rotted wood and moist areas. Homeowners might not see these swarmers, but they can’t miss the piles of discarded wings left behind once a new termite colony is established.
Pest World reports that each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage across the nation as these tiny creatures eat nonstop. But, worst of all, the structural damage they create is not typically covered by homeowners insurance.
Find a Termite Control Partner
Both subterranean termites and drywood termites are prevalent in California, and no amount of wishful thinking will keep a home termite-free. Unfortunately, it may take three to five years for termite damage to become obvious, so homeowners would be wise to team up with a termite service such as Ecola.
Ecola offers free termite inspections. They’ll be able to determine what termite species are present in your home and outline the termite control options best for your circumstance. If Ecola determines that your home is termite-free, they can offer preventative measures that provide peace of mind.
Alternative Pest Control
Many people worry about the residual effect traditional termite control can have on their families. Fumigation also requires finding an alternate place to live for several days. Why not use one of Ecola’s alternative pest control methods instead? There are eco-friendly nonchemical solutions that are just as effective.
Ecola spearheaded alternative pest control methods such as Ecola Heat, the Electro-Gun, and the use of Borates.
