and there is nothing you can do to stop them....or is there. For those of us who live in the South, termites are an issue that must always be present in our minds.
With the recent addition of some warmer days, termites will inevitably begin to get active again. In fact, we have already heard of two cases where termite swarmers (flying termites...also called alates) have been present.
While the presence of termites at this time of the year is not extremely common, it does happen more times than you would think. If the conditions of the soil and the temperature around a colony is just right, then an early swarm is very possible.
With that being said, all hope is not lost. With the proper protection in place, such as a liquid based termiticide application or a baiting system, we as homeowners can be prepared. While we may not be able to stop termites from swarming, we can make sure that our homes (most likely our most valuable assets) are not left exposed and vulnerable to a termite infestation.
