Now that you’ve identified that you’re experiencing a termite swarm in your home, follow these important steps to ensure a speedy resolution.
Swarming termites are the key to where the colony is active.
Instead, calmly and visually inspect for where the swarmers might be entering. Mark any areas with tape. Swarming termites cannot bite or sting and are incapable of causing any harm to you, your children, or your pets.
It's crucial to not remove or open walls, flooring, or baseboards and do not prod trim or sills in an attempt to find termite damage.
We promise you this is sound and very important advice that will aid in the treatment of termites in your home. Inspecting and isolating damaged areas will come up after you’ve received treatment.
Simply dispose of the bag or remove the contents of your canister vacuum when you’re finished.
Consider the area(s) where you’ve discovered the termite swarm and go directly to the place that is exterior from that area (if you can). Do not, however, risk injury to yourself. If you are able to do so, you’ll want to mark these areas with tape as well.
If you discover a termite swarm outside of normal business hours, we recommend that you continue to vacuum any new swarmers that appear over the next 24 hours.
While a termite swarm is an indicator of a problem, substantial damage from termites doesn’t happen overnight.
