The groundhog was wrong – at least for the Oklahoma area.  While parts of the north and west have been ravaged by snow and dangerous rains, it’s been quite nice in the Sooner state.  But nicer weather can invite a few visitors that no one wants to entertain termites.

Swarming of these destructive and pesky little creatures usually occur in the spring and most often during the morning following a warm rain shower, whereby the soil temperature is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

There are several areas in green country that are in high risk of spring-time termite swarms including: Bartlesville, Broken Arrow, Claremore, Jenks, Miami, Muskogee, Okmulgee, Owasso, Ponca City, Sand Springs, Sapulpa and Tulsa.

“We are armed and prepared for the early spring weather,” said Sheila Disler or Mother Nature’s Pest Control & Lawn Care. “Treatments are administered in and around our homes, garden, shrubs and lawns, therefore diminishing the inherent numbers of termites, mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and bedbugs.”

Termite colony nest development is slow in the first few months. But after a few years, the queen termite can actually produce up to 10,000 offspring a year.  One queen may live for many years and workers up to two years.  The swarmers go to work in the thousands after a mature termite nest is large and well-established on smaller nests. When specialists find a smaller swarmer nest, it’s a sure sign that a larger termite nest is in the vicinity and professional protection is required.  

“We always perform a thorough, free inspection at your residence or business before recommending any treatment, “said Justin Buckmaster of Mother Nature’s.  “Each pest problem is different and requires a tailor-made solution.  Mother’s Nature’s experienced staff is ready to help our neighbors in green country prepare.”

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, U.S. residents spend an estimated $5 billion annually to control termites and repair termite damage. One termite swarm can cause thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage to one home or business.

“Our biggest investments are our homes and businesses, and it makes sense to proactively guard those investments with professional help, “said Sheila. “And, Mother Nature’s has been serving the green country area since 1979.  If you need us, we will be there.”
