What’s New? Its Termite Season! Springtime is termite swarm season in Oklahoma. Homeowners often mistake swarming termites for ants with wings. Sometime all you (Mr./Mrs. homeowner) will see are wings on a window sill inside your home. The swarmers will knock their wings off and try to make their way back to the soil below your home’s foundation. They will not go away on their own, these unwanted guests have to be evicted and Statewide has the perfect solution. If you suspect that you have had a termite swarm call Statewide today to schedule a termite inspection. Here are some common questions and answers. We are highly qualified in termite remediation and are looking forward to meeting your termite remediation needs.
Q) If I have a swarm what should I do?
A) You should make note of where the swarm is originating from if possible and allow them to swarm out. We suggest taking a garbage bag and placing it over the area where the swarm is occurring from and letting them swarm. Swarmers will continue until all the swarmers are out of the swarm castle. If you try to use a pesticide spray on it you will only prolong the agony and cause what will appear to be another swarm.
Q) My house was just treated a few months ago and I am having a swarm, why?
A) There could be several reasons this is happening, first, you could have had a partial treatment and the area the swarm is coming from was not covered, second, you may have been treated after the termites were already in the swarm castle and above the treated zone. In either case, I would recommend calling the company that did your treatment and allow them to explain this better to you.
Q) Since my house was treated I won’t ever have termites again correct?
A) No that is not correct, the products on the market today, even the Termidor that we use has a life expectancy of about 12 to 15 years and that is all. If the company that treated your house giving you the option to renew your guarantee after the initial period I would suggest doing it. Do it for your sake and for your home’s sake.
