With spring right around the corner and with the change of seasons comes the beginning of termite swarm season. While termites are a common problem across the eastern United States, right here in Virginia is the heart of termite country. These termites cause millions of dollars in damage to houses and other structures across the United States annually.
Subterranean termites are the kind of termites that are located here in Virginia. Swarming is the way that termites disperse and create new termite colonies. Once conditions are favorable, the subterranean swarmers emerge from their colonies to strike out on their own. These termites can be found indoors as early as late February or in the outdoors starting in March, all depending on the weather. When you see a termite swarm either indoors or outside of your home, it generally is the first indication that you may have a termite infestation.
