Are Termites In NJ Still A Threat In The Fall?

We've been having some pretty crazy weather, with the flash floods up and down the East Coast. As pest professionals, we take notice of the weather because bad weather breeds bugs.

As we move into fall, it is important to understand that subterranean termite populations are going to be higher than normal. This is because wet weather can inspire termite colonies to send out swarmers, an activity that is typically constrained to spring. When a colony releases swarmers it is for one reason and one reason alone: to create more colonies. While there are no statistics on how much termite growth we had this summer with all that rain we have had, we know one thing, there are going to be more termites this fall!

That large amount of rain did more than simply fertilize the subterranean termite population. It also caused damage to homes-damage that termites are attracted to. When worker termites search for food, they go where there is wet wood. If your home has been damaged by excessive rainwater, it is important to dry things up and make repairs.

Once you have things fixed up and dry, it is wise to get termite protection, especially with termite populations higher than usual. Subterranean termites cost U.S. property owners over $5 billion annually.
