Termites Still Swarming in Lexington
September 13, 2018
Lexington weather has the perfect combination of ideal temperatures and climate conditions that allow for continual termite activity throughout the month of September. The warm humid weather in Indiana in the summer will cause termites to continue to swarm and, in effect, prolifically enhance the termite population.
Termite swarmers are flying termites, which leave an established colony in order to pair off with mates, reproduce, and begin new colonies. These swarmers look much like flying ants, but termite wings are lighter in color and have no separation in their body. If you see termite swarmers swarming around your home and yard, you might have a serious problem with termites.
You would do well to prevent termites before they become a problem. If even one termite is spotted, it is best to take action right away. And just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. These silent destroyers can go unnoticed for long periods of time, allowing them to do serious damage to a structure. Once they get inside, they will eat their way through every bit of wood they can find in order to support and feed their colonies. They do considerable damage to floors, walls, ceilings, furniture, personal items, and even support beams. Once they do this much damage, it may be too late to do anything about them, except pay for all of the damage they have done--and not make that same mistake twice.
There are a few signs you can look for, such as flying swarmers. You may also find discarded wings in corners or window sills or tiny sawdust piles around wooden objects, beams, cabinets, or floors. These are all indications you have termites.
