Spring is Termite Swarming Season; When is it Over?

Termites cause more damage than any other insect and will destroy a home leaving little to no equity left. Spring is when termite colony swarms and get dangerously close to your home. When termites swarm they are only in the air for a very short amount of time until they find a mate and their wings drop off. This swarming often occurs close to residential homes and the termites will land on the ground close to your home. Termite damage can happen without the homeowner having any idea that any type of damage is being done or that there are even termites in their home.
