Termite Swarming Season – Safeguard Your Home with Termite Exterminator
When the weather warms up and the spring rain falls, flowers are not the only things that begin to appear. The warm, spring weather also brings termite swarming season. Safeguard your home with a professional termite exterminator.
Termite swarming season is the time that termites emerge in search of a new home in which to start a colony. The termite swarm is made up of winged termites who are ready to mate. These termites will pair up and begin reproducing as soon as they find a suitable location for their new colony of offspring. One termite queen’s progeny could number in the millions over the course of her life cycle.
Termites usually swarm when the temperature begins to climb, typically following a rain because termites require a moist environment to survive. This is the time you should be looking for signs of termite swarms around your house. However, termites may also swarm when an established colony has become too crowded.
A termite swarm around your home is a warning sign that termites are either in your home already, or are looking for suitable spots to establish a colony. If you observe winged termites emerging from any part of your home’s structure, you should call a termite exterminator, Capitol Pest at 301-603-3169.

Damage from termite colonies is not usually covered by your homeowner’s insurance. This is why a regular termite inspection and elimination of any existing termites is essential to prevent the damage that termites can do to your home.
