Why are Drywood Termites Swarming in Southern California?
Drywood termites need to be taken seriously. Each year, termites cause more than $2.5 billion in treatment and repair costs in the United States. Although both fire and termite damage can significantly lower the value of a property, termite damage is rarely covered by homeowner's insurance.
During drywood termite swarming season in Southern California, reproductive termites take flight to start new colonies,so you're likely to see termites swarming...and the fecal pellets they leave behind. Swarming termites can infiltrate a home in a matter of minutes and begin eating the wood of a home from the inside out. Damaged wood and large swarms of winged termites in and around the home are the most obvious signs of a drywood termite infestation. Drywood termites can live inside walls for years before a homeowner realizes the severity of the problem. It's difficult to detect the presence of drywood termites because they work silently within the structure's wooden beams, studs, molding and wood members.
