One of the most effective prevention measures is exclusion - performing structural maintenance to close potential entry points found during initial inspection. Treating for pest without considering prevention of the future issue is a waste of time. Repeated infestation must be prevented whenever possible.
It is that time of year again - termite season.
With rising heat and humidity termites are now moving closer to surface and they are preparing to swarm. Once a year, under perfect climate conditions, a mature colony will produce winged reproductives whose job is to mate and then fly off and create a new colony somewhere else. Whether you get a termite treatment or not, the swarmers will disappear, but that dose not mean they are gone. The swarmers make up only a small part of the termite colony and the swarming event is short. Most of the termite colony is made up of workers. Those are the guys that do the damage. They are busy all year round and they can number in the tens of thousands.
Because termites easily dehydrate under most environmental conditions and because they are a subterranean organism, you seldom see them. A termite colony can be busy in your home for years before you see the tell-tale signs, like mud tubes, damaged wood or swarmers.
