When it comes to year-round pests, the termite is one of the first you’ll often think of. The termite can infect the home in any season of the year, including winter.
At Greenside, we’re here to prevent termites and numerous other pests from invading your home no matter which season it is. Here are some basics on how termites survive in the colder seasons, plus warning signs to watch out for.
Termites can remain active during winter, mainly by either going deeper underground or deeper inside your temperature-controlled home. They’ll dig deeper tunnels and forage further for food sources, and some may forage closer to nesting areas.
