Spring is here and that means termite activity is on the rise. Termites can cause quite a ruckus in Florida. Drywood, Native Subterranean, Formosan and Asian Subterranean Termites all call Florida home. If not properly checked, they can cause massive structural damage.
Warm temperatures and heavy rains during spring and summer months trigger swarming behavior, infestations and new nests.
Signs of termites include:
- The presence of a large number of winged termites in the home or around the property
- Wings and termite bodies around lights, doors and window sills, TV or computer screens (termites are attracted to light sources)
- Hollow-sounding or weakened wood
- Droppings that look like sand, coffee grounds or little wood pellets
- Muddy holes in wood
