Springtime is termite swarm season. Winged termites can suddenly appear inside your home. You will often find them on window sills and near other light sources. While they look like flying ants, they are most likely termites here in the Sacramento area. Call us immediately to schedule a free inspection to be sure. Save a sample insect in a plastic baggie. Spray the rest with Raid or some other household pesticide. It won't kill the termite colony but it will slow them down until we can treat your home with Termidor, the most effective guaranteed termite treatment.
If you see mud tubes on your foundation or while remodeling or cleaning the garage, it means you have termites!
No matter how old your home is, where it's located, or how it's constructed, it is susceptible to being attacked by termites. Every year they cause billions of dollars of damage in the United State alone - damage that homeowners insurance won't cover. Chances are you will never see evidence of termites or termite damage until it's too late.
As the seasons change, many bugs invade your home.
