Termite Season is Upon Us
Termites are social insects
that live in colonies with specific roles. There are
workers, soldiers, reproductives and even queens.
As a colony matures, it may
release winged males and females that are called
“swarmers.” If they survive, swarmers will settle, shed
their wings and form a new colony. You will know if you have
"swarmers" they usually show up by the hundreds,
crawling around and shedding their wings.
Swarming season occurs in late
spring through fall depending on the species and geographic
location. There is no rhyme or reason that termites may
show up in your home. They have no eyes and they are always
foraging for food, hoping to get lucky by bumping into some
wood. In NY our species of termites are Subterranean,
which means they live in the soil.
Some people spray raid, others pour bleach when
an inside infestation occurs. This may ease your mind
but will not help at all, you will need a professional
treatment. There are different types of treatments
available such as liquid and baiting. Each one serves a
purpose and is very effective.
Don't let termites destroy your house,
there is a lot of internal damage that can take place prior
to seeing any termites emerge.
