When you are dealing with pests in your home, you are most often dealing with pests that are particular to that season. As the seasons start to change and the weather either gets colder or warmer the type of pests that you have to deal with are going to be different. However, there are some pests that are around all year but many of them change. The issue is what you should do if your infestation is a problem in one season and that season changes. Do you still need to deal with that pest or can you just forget about it? The issue is that the pests that you are going to forget about are going to come back at some point and you will need to deal with it then. The problem may come back even worse and could potentially cause more damage.

Where Termites Go During Winter Cold Weather & Why You Need To Be Aware Of Them

If you are working on your home in the warm months and you notice that you have a termite issue, you should deal with it as soon as possible and most people do. Termites are a pest that will stay working all year round and never take a break. Most people think they are only an issue in the warm months because that is when they see termite swarmers, discarded wings and mud tubes, and notice the damage that is being caused.

During the colder months, termites are not going to hibernate. Most species of termites are going to dig in the ground to find a place to stay warm. They need to be in an area that is close to around 75 degrees to be comfortable. That means that even though they are not as active in your home they are still a problem. You definitely do not want to make repairs to termite damage on your home unless the infestation has been completely resolved. Don’t assume that just because the termites have gone underground for the cold weather that they are gone and won’t return. As soon as the surface temperature rises, the hungry termites will be back. That is why you want to treat the infestation as soon as possible and before you make any repairs to your property.
