Why Termites Could Still Be A Threat To Your Richmond Home

Many pests have a “season” when they are most active. However, termites can be active all year long, especially if they have set up camp inside the warmth of your structure and wood. So don’t let your guard down. Termites could be wreaking havoc in your home right now and could be a problem all winter long. Just think of the damage they can do throughout the year without you ever being the wiser.
Late swarmers can lead to an extended peak period of time that can go well into October. This is a period of time when you may find the discarded wings of insects in your Richmond home, as well as winged termites emerging from your walls. These swarmers are seeking a mate in order to begin a new colony which will exponentially compound an existing infestation.

Once termites have gained access to your home, structure, and other wood items, they will feed on all the wood they can find, especially if it is soft, moist, or water damaged. They are the #1 structure-damaging pest in Canada, costing home and business owners around $5 billion a year. You don’t want to become one of the statistics that make that amount grow each year.

Termites are really difficult to eradicate fully as their primary nest can be up to 300 feet away from where they are looking for wood products to consume, and they can develop multiple satellite colonies. They work silently in hidden locations, making it very hard to find them, get rid of them, and keep them away. A professional pest control service can guarantee effective and efficient results controlling the termites that are plaguing your home. Our professional, highly trained technicians are armed and ready to get to work for you with the most effective methods to make sure your home is termite free.

How You Should Prepare for Scorpions in Winter

The Arizona Bark scorpions can congregate together in groups of up to 30. What we didn’t tell you is that they normally do during the winter months, normally between January and February.

Although they can survive the cold weather, Arizona Bark scorpions like to seek refuge in warm places, like the inside of your home. Once inside, they’ll pine for shade so you may find these pests in dark crevices between flooring and baseboards, behind your couch, or even more eerily, inside your sneakers.

Scorpions may hibernate inside your home because they despise cooler temperatures, and they are sometimes hard to spot if you aren’t looking. They only really come out of hibernation when the weather warms up so you may not notice them until the first signs of the spring show.

Scorpions are sneaky in that they can pinpoint entryways into your home, so it’s important that these cracks are sealed and old weather stripping on doors is replaced when necessary. Another precautionary measure to take is to make sure the shrubbery on your home’s interior is trimmed before cold weather hits as they are excellent climbers and can maneuver their way through.
