What Does The Wet Weather Mean For Termite Control in St Louis?

Termite swarms are dependent on a bunch of factors.  They need the temperature, moisture, wind velocity and atmospheric pressure to be right, or they can't produce the swarms that they want.  Even the different species of termites will lay their broods and come out at different times of the year.  Most experts believe that termite activity is cyclical, brought on by food availability, drought and floods, which push populations to different climates and locales.  However, the swarms are regional, in that they ebb and flow with freezes and high temperatures. 

Where do these termites breed?  One place is construction sites. These sites often leave puddles and open air areas that are conducive to the growth of termites.  The raw wood left around the sites provide them with the ability to feed freely.  They can then stick around after the construction is complete and nest in the newly constructed building.  This leads to the swarms spreading to the other homes and buildings in the area. 

Knowing these trends and being able to respond to them is what separates experienced termite control experts in St. Louis from the rest.  A pest control expert can keep termites out of your home with treatment programs that give your family or business peace of mind.  Contact Richardson Pest Solutions today at to schedule a free inspection, and see how a termite treatment program can keep your home safe.
