In Southern California, it is not unusual to see swarming termites in the spring, especially after a rain. Swarming is what drywood termites typically do when they sense the time is right. It’s also one of the most obvious signs that you have termites in close proximity to your property, if not in it!
Seeing termite signs like this, of course, can conjure all manner of anxiety in a property manager or homeowner. Many find themselves asking, “Will my house need to be fumigated?” and “How bad is this going to be?”
The type of treatment you will need depends on several factors, and each situation is unique. However, there is one consistent rule of thumb: The earlier the detection, the more non-tenting options you, the beleaguered property owner or manager, will have.
There is a larger life lesson here, dear readers, because termites can be a metaphor for any of life’s issues that get worse with neglect. Whether we are dealing with serious matters like health problems or mundane matters like taxes and home upkeep, get to your problems early. Don’t put them off, or they will grow larger.
