Termite Swarmers Kick Into Gear at Different Times of the Year Depending on the Species

If you have never heard the term “termite swarmers” you might be thinking it is the name of a really unique rock band or a crazy new breed of termites. What the term describes is something that happens when a termite colony gets too large and termite swarmers, also known as alates, go off in search of a more welcoming home. Unfortunately, that could end up being your home if they can find a way to get inside.

At Pest & Termite Consultants, we recommend termite control as a preventative measure, but we also suggest an inspection after termite swarming season so any invaders can be dealt with before they can achieve a large colony and cause structural damage. Termite swarmers kick into gear at different times of the year depending on the species. If you want complete peace of mind, we should check for subterranean termite swarmers in late spring, dampwood termites during the summer, and drywood swarmers closer to fall.

The other thing to remember is that if you have termite swarmers coming near your Apex, North Carolina home, there is a very good chance that there is an active colony nearby. In fact, it could already be at a different area of your home. Regular inspections and preventative termite control services are critical to keep termite swarmers at bay.

If you have any questions about termite swarmers or would like to schedule an inspection, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We an also discuss our other pest control services designed to keep your home free of pests that annoy and pose a danger to health and home.

At Pest & Termite Consultants, we can eliminate termite swarmers from properties in Fuquay-Varina, Angier, Holly Springs, Apex, Cary, Garner, South Raleigh, and Clayton, North Carolina
