FORT MYERS, FLORIDA (February 17, 2012)
– The good news? For those living in Florida during the winter and
spring months, the sunshine and blue skies are abundant! The bad news?
So are the termites. Unfortunately, Florida must take the good with the
bad. This means that, along with gorgeous weather during the months of
February through April, residents must also contend with “termite
swarming season”. Fort Myers pest control company, Larue Pest
Management, warns that termite swarming season will be upon us by the
end of this month, and will continue through April.

“During swarming season, termite “swarmers” (basically, termites with
wings) are designated to fly away from the colony and spread the colony
to new places,” said Keith Ruebeling of Larue Pest Management. These
termites are only capable of spreading the colony and can not cause any
damage to your home. However, their children, the worker termites will
eat and destroy the wood in your home. Therefore, it is imperative to
have your home inspected for subterranean termites during this time, and
to take the proper measures to prevent termites, as well as other
pests, from invading your home or business.”

Larue Pest Management offers a solution for the detection and
prevention of termites, called the Sentricon System with Always Active®
. This utilizes a unique system to detect and prevent
subterranean termites, eliminating them before they have the opportunity
to infest a home. The technology uses bait stations, placed in the soil
at precise intervals around the property, which contain a constant
supply of the Recruit® HD Bait Matrix. This provides 24/7 protection
for the home against subterranean termites. Larue will also monitor the
Sentricon stations periodically for signs of termite activity.

Larue also offers a comprehensive service for residential properties
to eliminate all pests, called the “Homeguard Pest Protection Service”.
This service includes a thorough inspection of the home, inside and
out, to check for current or potential pest problems. In addition to
termites, Larue will also be checking for other common Florida pests,
such as ants, roaches, silverfish, spiders, fleas, and rodents. Once
the inspection has been performed, a treatment is administered to key
harborage areas inside of the home, as well as to the exterior
perimeter. Routine quarterly visits are then provided to maintain pest
and termite protection.

Ruebeling added, “Having an inspection for subterranean termites
during the swarming months is your best defense against a termite
infestation. If you have already found termite swarmers leaving from the
structure of a window, door, porch columns, or any wood structure, then
you should contact a pest service immediately. Once termite swarmers
are inside these structures, they have the ability to mate and begin
reproducing working termites, which will cause damage to your home. If
you begin seeing multiple swarmers, more than likely this indicates that
a colony has formed somewhere in or near your home. The quicker you
take care of the problem, the less damage will be done to your home.”
