When are Termites Most Active?

Termites are most active during the spring and summer seasons. In other words, termites are most active when it’s warm outside, which means that you’re more likely to see them during the spring and summer months.

However, the unfortunate truth is that termites are active all year round, clandestinely causing harm to a residence. They’re most active when temperatures are moderately high, usually between 70°F and 90°F.

Additionally, termites predominantly come out during the nighttime due to their light and open-air sensitivity. They are able to forage and seek out new food sources safely throughout the night when there is less light and more humidity, protecting them from predators and desiccation.

Now, when it comes to dealing with termites, the most effective method, regardless of the season, is to prevent an infestation from occurring in the first place.
