Marin Termite Control Co. Inc., a termite extermination and carpenter ant control company that serves Marin and Sonoma since 1971, is offering this tip to homeowners, property managers, tenants and contractors: During the swarming season, schedule an inspection early to keep termites and carpenter ants from swarming indoors and causing structural damage.

“Every spring with the return of warmer days following rain, damp nights and foggy mornings, winged reproductive termite and carpenter ant swarmers, also known as alates, patiently await the right temperature, humidity and time to swarm, or fly, to escape their cryptobiotic colony,” said Phil Beaubois of Marin Termite Control Co. Inc. “The purpose of their swarming is to fly outside, find a mate and start a new colony.”

When infestations are present inside a structure, the chances of swarming inside a house, apartment or office increase and people may experience hundreds or even thousands of flying termites and carpenter ants indoors. Their chances of survival indoors are quite small and their instinct is to fly to the outdoors, which is why they are often seen by windows, skylights, sliding glass doors or bay windows. The insects also swarm in great numbers because their chances of survival are quite small, and many will fall to predators awaiting them.

Marin Termite Control performs thorough and quality inspections, checking all areas, from crawl spaces to attics. It provides a detailed, itemized report with competitive pricing. The company has tested many products and application methods, which allows its inspectors to identify the best treatments available. Marin Termite Control also offers the most reliable and less intrusive treatment methods using the least toxic applications, such as Altriset, BoraCare, natural oils and other reputable products. Getting an infestation detected early can prevent invaders from swarming indoors and save thousands of dollars in repair costs that may surface later on.

“Don’t wait for swarmers to invade your house to find out about infestations and damage. Being proactive is the best way to prevent termites from swarming and damaging your home,” Phil Beaubois said. “We are a locally owned and operated professional company that aims to deliver dependable, customized, and good, old-fashioned service. Inspection reports are e-mailed or faxed the next business day and our inspectors are available to answer questions. Call us to schedule an inspection before the next swarm occurs.”
