Termites in Olathe

Termites in Olathe  At this time of year, there can be a severe problem of termites that most homeowners are not even aware of.  More often, termites invade homes and are well-established, mature colony before the homeowner realizes.  Generally, in the early spring the winged reproductive termites make their way out from their relative secure homes underground and in your walls to reproduce and establish a new colony either in your property or nearby.

There are some warning signs, however, you can usually expect to see swarms in the area as early as late February and with the peak in mid May.  It is also expected that you will see the swarms on a day that receives rain within 48 hours of a spring rain shower.  Often times you will see hundreds of winged swarmers, and in rare cases you may see just a handful maybe less than ten swarmers.  The number of swarmers that are exposed indicates a fraction of the size of the colony currently eating the lumber within your home.

If you should notice any suspect activity of termites, which leads you to believe that you might have termites in your home, do not try to treat yourself.   It is best to call a licensed, experienced company like KC Pest Away at 913 937-PEST 7378 for an onsite evaluation and plan of action.  Treating the problem yourself may actually make the problem worse and in the end cost you more in terms of damage, cost of hiring a pro, and the aggravation the whole situation has caused you for trying to save a couple dollars.
