Swarmers Spring 2019This time of the year is when we start to see “swarmers”. Termites are particularly well known for beginning to swarm in the warm spring months. This is due to the amount of rain we receive in Georgia coupled with the warmer temperatures. You might as, “Why should I be concerned with the swarming of termites? Swarming termites have wings and their primary objective is to start their own colonies of termites. The male and female termites fly around to look for suitable locations to build their colonies where they will become the next kings and queens of the colony. Just like other insects, swarming termites are attracted to light. The lights in your home will lure termites to window sills which are common entry points for termites. Additionally, exterior light sources such as security lights & entry door lights are common attractors. Georgia is more prone to large numbers of termites due in part to the large number of mature pines we have in the state. Termites prefer hardwood trees. However, termites can only obtain access to the wood of a hardwood tree if there is damage to the bark. Pine trees have an outer bark that is less dense and able to be penetrated by termites. Larger pines are particularly susceptible to termites. The outer bark of a mature pine is able to absorb more water than hardwood trees which makes it a soft target. You should inspect the outer bark of your larger pine trees. If you find small pencil-led-sized holes in the outside of the pine bark, you likely have termites nesting within the tree. Eliminating termites from your property will keep them from swarming and creating new nests. Termites will cause serious damage to your property that can cost a lot of money. If you suspect you have termites, call Sentry Pest Control, we will schedule a time to do a termite inspection at your home in Winder.
Ants & Fire Ants – They’re BackFire ants are the most active in the Spring time. It is also the best time to treat your property for fire ants. Fire ants, much like humans, do not like to go outside in extreme temperatures. During the Winter and Summer months, ants will dig deeper into the ground to escape cold and hot temperatures. The Spring and Fall months are when ants can be found closer to the surface. Many of our customers who attempt to treat their own yard for fire ants, complain that the ants simply relocate to another spot nearby. Treating the entire yard and not just spot treating is important. Additionally, you should make sure your lawn is treated by a professional pest control company in the Spring and Fall. It is important to note that fire ants can be lethal for both pets and people. If you are in Winder and need assistance with fire ant treatments, call Sentry Pest Control.
MosquitoesMosquito control is more important than ever in Georgia. This last mosquito season, West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus, and LaCrosse virus were all detected in the state of Georgia. Choosing to hire an experienced mosquito control company will drastically reduce mosquito population around your home. Mosquito populations can get out of control very quickly. A single female mosquito can lay up to 100 eggs each time she lays eggs. She will generally lay three separate sets of eggs within her lifespan. That means a single female has the capacity to create over 300 mosquitoes within 40 to 56 days! Your pets are at risk of health complications due to mosquitoes too. Your canine companions can get heartworms due to mosquito bites. Heartworms are not only harmful to your dog, it is also quite costly to treat heartworms once your dog has them.
