California has had heavy rain over the past few months. After the rain we all know insects start swarming around in many places. Swarms are provoked by heavy rainfall and warm, humid temperatures among other triggers. The rain washes many things away, but it can also bring things in to your home. Spring time termites are one of the biggest threats to your home. Spring is the main swarming season for many subterranean termites.
Subterranean termites cause over $2 billion in damage each year. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas above ground. They build tunnels in search of food; able to reach food above the ground level by building mud tubes. If mud tunnels are visible on the walls or foundation of your home, it is likely that you are experiencing a subterranean termite infestation. More rain is expected to come our way so remember a termite inspection of your home is your best defense against damage caused by termites and other wood-destroying organisms. Make sure to give our termite inspection company a call today to keep those spring time termites away.
