Termite Activity & Treatments

Unfortunately, Tennessee is a popular state for termites. These pests are active in Nashville, East Tennessee, and West Tennessee. Our state primarily sees Subterranean and drywood termites. Subterranean termites almost always require soil contact to live, whereas drywood termites do not require soil and can live within furniture, hardwood floors, or wooden support beams.

According to Bug Guy Pest Control, removing the warm and moist conditions that mulch creates will help you avoid termites. Good alternatives to mulch are cut rubber pieces, pine straw, and pea gravel. Similarly, removing firewood stored up against or right near your home is a good idea.

Swarming Season in Nashville TN

Termite swarming season in Nashville usually occurs between March and June, after the final freeze of the winter. Once the temperatures hit the 70s and their colony reaches a large enough size this activity is prone to commence. These insects work to squeeze through any space they can such as separations in the foundation or openings in the walls. Termites generally choose to swarm on a warm day after it rains. You may find some swarming occur in heated buildings during colder months. When termites swarm, the winged adults are flying away to form their own colonies. In many cases the swarming colonies are subterranean termites, but they may also be drywood or dampwood termites. The dampwood bugs are not really an issue since they generally do not harm structures such as your home.

What to Do When You See Swarming Termites

It can be alarming to find termites swarming in or near your home. Your property may be infested with termites or you may not have termites at all. Flying ants can look very similar to flying termites. You will want to take care of the problem either way. If you have a termite bond, call your termite company to investigate.
