Termite Swarmers and Termite Inspection Tips

It seems hard to believe that I found termite swarmers inside a home in the first week of February.  The reason it is hard to believe is that termite swarmers are typically not found in homes until the end of March into the first few weeks of April for the St. Louis area.  It is even harder to explain given the fact that we have had an abnormal amount of snow, in my opinion, along with really frigid temperatures.  Needless to say we installed the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System, along with some above ground stations in the areas of activity to get the problem under control.  Just a few reminders, in looking  for termite activity the number one place to find them is in the floor joists under the front porch of the home.  Look along the corners where the joists meet the sill plate, and header joist.  You must also remove the insulation from between the joists as this will hide activity pretty easily.  Call or visit Blue Chip Pest Services at 636-343-7900 or for more information or pest control or termite control options.
