When Does Florida Termite Season Start?
Here in Florida, termites are active all year round. However, there are times of the year when they are more active than others. We usually begin to see termite swarms usually around the same time as baseball's spring training season in February. However, even though swarms start in February, Florida termite season is really all year, which means, termites can continue to cause damage to your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
How Long Is The Florida Termite Season?
The period of time in which termites are most visible really depends on a lot of factors, such as the weather. Some winters are colder than others and summers can differ from year to year. For example, subterranean termites won't go looking for food if the soil is too hot or too cold.
How well a colony is sheltered can play an important role in how active termites are. Drywood termites are typically found inside a temperature regulated home. Thus, because they are not exposed to extreme temperature changes, these colonies can be extremely active all year.
When Does Florida Termite Season End?
Termites can cause damage to your home no matter what time of year and regardless of the outside temperature. While you may see the swarms starting in February, they may have already been building a colony since last year without your knowledge. If you suspect there are signs of an infestation in your home, it is critical to call Super D Pest Control right away to have your property inspected.
