Lexington’s Residential Pest Control Experts Offer Information on Controlling Termites in Winter, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Termites can cause tremendous amounts of damage to your home, but you may be wondering if termites are active during the cold winter months. The professionals from Lexington, KY’s Guarantee Pest Control have your answers for residential pest control and how to protect your home year-round. 

Termites can remain active all year, even during the winter. These tiny subterranean pests burrow even deeper in cooler months to find the warmth they need to remain alive. They forage closer to nests during the cooler months, and although still alive, they are not as active as in warmer months. You may still find termites inside your house during this time, particularly in your walls and foundation where they have found food and a cozy shelter. Other signs of active termites are mud tubes or tunnels, buckling paint or tiny holes in wood, and damaged wood that appears crushed at structural points.It is unlikely, though, to find swarms from December through February unless you live in more tropical areas.

The trained inspectors at Guarantee Pest Control can detect active or previously active colonies year-round. They can perform pest extermination and can also suggest ways to eliminate conditions in your home that may attract termites, such as water-damaged wood, condensation around windows, soil or mulch around the foundation that touches your siding, firewood stacked by the home, or wood debris in crawlspaces.

To target termites, the experts at Guarantee Pest Control use Termidor and may need to drill through concrete slabs and trench soil around the perimeter of your home. They will also treat your crawlspace and other areas, removing wood debris and eliminating visible termite shelter tubes. The professional team also offers follow-up services monthly, quarterly, and semi-annually to prevent any future infestations.
