When Termites Become Active?

Before knowing “How to get rid of termites?” you should know about their characteristic. In spring, between March to May they become very active. In this time we can see them flying. Then they start making new colony and start breeding. They try to find warm and humid atmosphere.

It is essential to know about their presence as early as possible.

When you will see winged termites inside your property then consider it as a warning sign of a massive attack. 
Winged termites and ants are very similar. They look like large ants. But we can identify them by their straight antenna on their head and also with equal length wings where ants have elbow angle antenna and unequal length wings. 

You will see them flying around bright light source. They are attracted by bright light. You also can see them flying around doors and windows. They create mud tubes for safe and comfortable movement. Mud tubes are sign of potential termite infestation.
If they attack any wooden furniture then damaged surfaces will be visible. You might see very thin sheets of wood like papers around the infested area. For more information you can see other pages of this blog.

  2. I never knew that termites were the most active during the spring! Although, thinking back on it, it was around April that my husband noticed a termite problem in his shop! At first, I was really freaked out about them, but we were able to find a great company to come in and take care of the problem quickly and efficiently! Your post is very informative about termites and finding the right company to take care of them and I wish I had been more aware of some of these things before having to deal with termites! http://www.fowlerpestcontrol.com

  4. An expert in termite extermination has all the necessary tools, equipment, chemicals, techniques, methods, knowledge and the most important – experience. Hiring a professional exterminator might cost you some money, but it might be more affordable than trying it on your own without knowing the basics and then end up spending even more on products that you have no idea if they work or not.

  6. The termites in the pictures remind me of the termite problem that I once had last week. It was quite scary to see how they ruined the wood from behind a dry wall that my father and I installed. Because of that, it has me thinking about rebuilding the wood and putting in more nails to secure that area. http://www.freedompestsolutions.com
