Termites tend to swarm during the spring months (April, May & June) as the younger queens look for new homes.
A colony of termites can eat a one-foot long 2×4 in a single day. And it’s not just the wood in walls: termites can also eat wooden furniture and cabinets!
As a homeowner, here are a few things you can do to watch out for termite infestations:
• Look for insect wings around the foundation of your home or on window ledges.
• Look for mud tunnels that come from the ground and lead to your home’s foundation.
• Look for flying bugs that are in groups and that are white or cream in color.
If you think there are termites in your home, call Ecology Pest Control right away at (718) 972-1040. Our specially trained technicians will recommend effective treatment options that emphasize prevention and minimize the use of pesticides.Back to blog
