In Florida, termites are always looking for an opportunity to create damage to your home, property, or business. Termites have actual “swarm seasons,” where the risk that termites will enter your home and multiple is much higher. Learn about the termite swarm seasons in Clearwater and the surrounding cities to prevent termite infestation.
This week, March 8th – March 15th, is National Termite Awareness Week to educate people on the damage that termites can cause to your home, property, or business.
Three main termites are found in our area, and each has a unique swarm season or time period.
Subterranean Termite Swarms
Winter and Spring months [February to April]
Drywood Termite Swarms
Late Spring and Summer [April through July]
Formosan Termite Swarms
Late Spring & Summer months at night
Subterranean Termites have already arrived in the Tampa Bay area, and they will continue on and off until April. The winged termites swarm an area looking for new nest sites, food sources, and a mate to start a new colony. They come into your home from cracks, holes, and the soil. The warm temperature and rain ensure the perfect breeding ground.
Did you know that swarmers are young female winged termites? These swarmers invade your home. Once they have relocated to your home, property, or business, the rest of the termite colony will soon follow.
