Moisture can attract carpenter ants and termites into your home and even though there is still snow on the ground, now is the time to be one the lookout.

“They will come into any crack or crevice in the house, really hard to get rid of them because you don’t know where they’re coming from.”

Before you get unwanted house guests, the best thing homeowners can do at this point is to dry out any places that got wet this year.

That’s because it’s the season for termites and ants.

What you see after a winter like this is significant ice dams and water intrusion into wall voids. It creates great habitat for ants because they attack moisture infected wood above the ground.

Termites tend to stay more on the ground level right now with the ground so wet, but carpenter ants can come in through the wet spots on your roof.

Keep an eye out for insect activity, ants moving. Termites will swarm in the next week or two. You’ll see what look like flying ants and the wings will fall off.

Some homeowners are shocked to see ants already sneaking into their houses. Some try to fix the problem on their own before calling in the professionals.

However, sometimes do-it-yourself doesn’t work. In those cases, a professional pest control company will go through the proper steps of exterminating ants and termites for you.
