Swarming termites in March isn’t really breaking news.
In fact, it’s typical to see termite swarms in the spring—even as early as February some years.
Because of the wacky weather this year, swarms have followed a roller coaster pattern, emerging when it’s warm, only to disappear from sight when the cold fronts come back through.
Few homeowners think about termites when it’s unusually cool, but they should.
To spread public awareness about termites, Scherzinger Pest Control and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) will be celebrating Termite Awareness Week through Saturday.
Subterranean termites are active year-round. Swarmers begin to emerge after the last winter freeze, when the temperatures rise to the low-to-mid-70s.
Besides swarms, one of the other most common warning signs for termites is mud tubes, which are tunnels made out of soil that subterranean termites use to travel to wood sources around homes.
Swarms will be occurring early afternoon and usually after a light rain.
Scherzinger Pest Control offers the following signs that termites may be present in a home:
