Insects and other pests often will enter a home through an unsealed door, torn screen, crack in the foundation or walls. After entry the pest will inhabit a portion of your home and reproduce. After a pest has infested your home it can be very difficult to exterminate.

If you were planning to take a trip to the ocean, would you want to know if sharks had been reported near that beach? Of course you would. Knowing where sharks have been seen can help you take appropriate measures to stay safe. You probably take other precautions as well, like making sure you go to a beach that has a lifeguard who sits high on one of those wooden platforms, or one that has routine boat patrols just off the coast. You may even be aware of some things you can do personally to decrease your chances of a scary encounter. Awareness is important.

Although termites don't attack people, finding them in your home or business can be equally as traumatizing and life-altering. These are wood-destroying insects that can come up from the ground and feed on the inside of wood for years. Finding this damage can be heart-wrenching. That is why Termite Awareness Week was established.

In 2017, Termite Awareness Week is March 12-18. Here are a few bullet points you should know about termites. Consider sharing them with your friends and family through social media, and help us give everyone the information they need to stay safe.

  • 2016/2017 winter was a mild one. That means there will be more termites that survived the winter.

  • When we have a warmer, shorter winter, termites take notice. These insects don't hibernate. They are able to become active as soon as temperatures warm up. This leads to more activity all year long.

  • We may not have had as much snow, but we still got a lot of moisture this winter. Moisture in the soil around a home or business can be attractive to termites.

  • Spring is the time of year when termites are most likely to send out swarmers to establish new nests.

  • If you have mulch, stacked wood, construction material, sticks and overgrowth, or some other wood product near your exterior walls, these will draw swarming termites in.

  • Termite damage is not inevitable. This is damage you can prevent with help from an educated pest professional.

In our Minnesota service area, we may not see as many termite infestations as those southern states, but we still see them. And subterranean termites are definitely not a problem you want to keep any eye out for yourself. These insects leave very little sign of their presence, and can damage a home silently over the course of many years. It is wise to have ongoing termite inspections for these and other damaging pests. If you'd like more information, reach out to us. We'd love to address your concerns.
