So “Punxsutawney Phil” got it wrong for South Jersey and spring in our area is coming a little later this year. The temperature changes have been all over the place. We’ve gone from turning on the air conditioning, then back to the heater and winter coats.
Today temperatures are going to hit the 70’s and all kinds of pests will start to appear.

Why Do Termites Swarm?
Termite swarms are a sign that the termite colony is too large and looking for a new food source. They may appear suddenly in or around your home by the hundreds, on a warm, humid day.
When this happens, panic usually follows. The truth is termite swarmers are harmless to you and your family. They only live a few hours so they can mate, reproduce and build a new colony – this is what you should be worried about!
