Termite Activity in the Winter

December 1, 2014by

We'll exterminate termites in your home.

This time of year inevitably brings with it a flurry of activity, especially for families. With children out of school and festivities to plan for, termite control is likely the last item on a homeowner’s to-do list. But, remember that even though these insidious pests do not swarm during the winter season here in Southern California, they may still be feasting on your structure.

In addition, if termites have already found a convenient path into your structure, remember that your heater is their heater, and your wood is their wood. You house them, you keep them warm, and you feed them, but the only thanks will receive for your generosity will be in the form of termite pellets, lost termite wings, termite damage, and a weakened structure. Termites do not take seasonal time outs like some pests; they do not hibernate during the winter. In colder climates, when the ground freezes, subterranean termites burrow deeper into the soil. Their activity slows, but they remain active. And in our dreamy climate, with many winter days that could pass for summer ones, you can rest assured that termites are industrious and well-fed.

So why not schedule a termite inspection this month? Our licensed inspectors will be happy to work around your schedule, your children, your pets, and your projects.
