The time you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! It’s termite season! What’s that? You haven’t been waiting for termite season? I think we can all agree that no one looks forward to termite season. However, even if you weren’t excitedly anticipating it, termite season is the perfect time to protect your Cypress home from termites.
What is Termite Season?
If you’re unfamiliar with the term or don’t know much about termites, you might wonder what termite season is. To be honest, termites are active year-round and can damage your home 365 days a year. In that way, there really isn’t one season that is termite season.
However, spring is often referred to as termite season because it is typically the time of year when termites reproduce. This is important for a couple of reasons.
This may be the only chance you have to get a clear sign that termites are on your property.
Most of the year termites stay hidden away underground or deep within your walls. Even the damage they cause is hidden, making them extremely difficult to identify.
When they reproduce, however, the reproductive termites in the colony (called termite swarmers) come out of the ground in a big group. They fly around, find a mate, shed their wings, then return underground to form new colonies.
If you see a termite swarm or find their discarded wings, you can be certain that a large termite colony is somewhere nearby.
This is the time of year when termite populations grow
Whether you see a swarm or not, you can be sure that wherever there is a well-established termite colony, it’s growing and spreading into new colonies. That’s bad news for you because if a termite colony is anywhere near your house, there’s a good chance that termite swarmers will find their way into your home to start another colony.
