What termite season means to you

It's March, and spring is the time when most homeowners get the bad news: they have a termite infestation in their home. Spring is when established termite colonies send out lots of winged termites, known as swarmers, to go off and start new or satellite colonies.

Homeowners usually see these winged insects flying around light sources, or they come home to see thousands of little wings dropped on the floor. Unfortunately, if you see either of these tell-tale signs, it's a pretty good bet you already have an infestation that needs treating.

Termites cause extensive damage to the structures they infest. They never sleep and they never stop eating. As incredible as it sounds, the damage caused by termites each year is more than floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and fires combined.
