Spring time has come, and for bugs, it can only mean one thing: it’s time to get moving. It’s not uncommon to see critters such as stink bugs and ants bring nuisance, but they’re the least of your problems. When spring comes, you need to be on guard against wood-eating, home-destroying termites.
The warming weather is one major factor for attracting termite swarms. Due to this they tend to enter homes (where temperatures are typically warmer than the outdoors) and often remain undetected while they munch away at a building’s innards. While a single termite can theoretically take 3,144 years to eat a 1,000-square-foot home to the ground, a termite doesn’t live alone. One colony or swarm can easily number in the thousands, if not millions.
