Pro-Staff Pest Control Warns of a Slow Start to Termite Season

Pro-Staff Pest Control, a highly-trusted company in Central Florida, warns clients of a slow start to Termite season due to a cold, wet spring.

Orlando, FL, June 06, 2014 --( This spring, and even at the beginning of this summer, Florida residents experienced unusually low climates. With low temperatures continuing well through April and a number of heavy, soaking rain showers, most homeowners will notice that they have only just begun to spot the winged alates which signify swarm season. As temperatures rise, however, this slow start does not mean that we have skipped swarm season altogether; in fact, we could have a particularly active swarm season on our hands this year.

In general, termites begin to swarm in late March through early April. However, it is the rising ground temperature that wakes them from their winter slumbers and stirs them into action. Since we witnessed unseasonably low temperatures throughout March, we are only just beginning to see the rising temperatures that promote activity and growth.

Furthermore, termites require moisture to thrive. Already in May, we have seen a number of extremely heavy storms and even some periods of extreme flooding. As the rainfall and the warmer weather appear in conjunction, we will start to see Florida’s infamous humidity--which termites love.

Bob Welch, owner of Pro-Staff, says, “All termites, regardless of variety or species, can do massive amounts of damage within short periods of time. As they spend the entirety of their days eating through foundations, carpentry, walls, and doors, you may find a serious mess on your hands in the blink of an eye.” Bob warns homeowners to remain aware of the following indicators that you have a termite swarm nearby:

Insects that look like winged ants, especially if they’re flocking after a warm rainshower

Discarded wings of alates, or swarming insects

Frass, or termite waste product

Dead insects near a light source or window

Mud tubes rising from the ground through foundation and walls

At Pro-Staff Pest Control, we understand the massive damage that termites can cause, as well as the importance of early preventive measures. If you see any signs of a termite swarm near your home, don’t hesitate--call Pro-Staff today at (407) 292-PEST.
