Many pests have a “season” when they are most active. However, termites can be active all year long, especially if they have set up camp inside the warmth of your structure and wood. So don’t let your guard down. Termites could be wreaking havoc in your home right now and could be a problem all winter long. Just think of the damage they can do throughout the year without you ever being the wiser.
Late swarmers can lead to an extended peak period of time that can go well into October. This is a period of time when you may find the discarded wings of insects in your Westchester home, as well as winged termites emerging from your walls. These swarmers are seeking a mate in order to begin a new colony which will exponentially compound an existing infestation.
Once termites have gained access to your home, structure, and other wood items, they will feed on all the wood they can find, especially if it is soft, moist, or water damaged. They are the #1 structure-damaging pest in the United States, costing home and business owners around $5 billion a year. You don’t want to become one of the statistics that make that amount grow each year.
Termites are really difficult to eradicate fully as their primary nest can be up to 300 feet away from where they are looking for wood products to consume, and they can develop multiple satellite colonies. They work silently in hidden locations, making it very hard to find them, get rid of them, and keep them away.
