Don’t Let Desert Subterranean Termites Ruin Your Summer Fun

Termites.
While you’re happily dusting off the grill and cleaning the pool, tiny bugs may be planning to devour your home. Termites swarm in Arizona from July through September. If your home is targeted, your repair bills could cause a few fireworks to go off inside your head. Termites can attack wood structures in your home any time of the year, but they like to creep up on you in summer when you’re busy enjoying life and not paying attention.

Why Do Termites Swarm in Summer?

No, they’re not migrating to September’s Arizona Insect Festival. The highly destructive and common desert subterranean termites swarm in the summer months on warm, mildly windy days. Because they need water to survive, you’ll often see them after a rainfall. Although they’re less common in Arizona, you may also encounter drywood termites during the warmer months. Your best defense is to keep your eyes open for signs of termite presence and damage.
