Termites

Seeing swarming termites is NOT a sign you have termites!! 

We do live in a forest and our forest landscape has termites who perform a very valuable function (chomp,chomp).  This is the season for swarming and it just means a colony is dividing.  You can see a swarm anywhere, anytime so do not jump to conclusions.

You can inspect your foundation yourself or call a pest control company to do so for you.
