Many homeowners are of the belief that pest control is not important in winter. Wintertime is usually when most animals hibernate from the harsh cold. Termites however pose a significant threat to your property if it hasn’t been properly treated.

The experts at Eco Advantage explain why getting termite treatment in winter is especially important.


Termites are a pest species that do not rest when the temperatures turn cold. They do, however, seek out warmer temperatures. This means that subterranean termites are especially dangerous. As they already burrow underground and feed 24/7, these pests can tunnel deep beneath your home’s foundation, and cause severe and costly property damage. It has been found that termites tend to cause more damage in the winter than they do in the spring and summertime as they are not leaving their tunnels in search of new places to build colonies.


As termites are attracted to wood and other fibrous materials, this means they will seek out any trees, wood decks, or piles of wood within one inch of the ground level. It is important to know that your home’s foundation is especially vulnerable to destruction without proper treatment. When you treat for termites in the winter, you are preventing infestations from happening.

Eco Advantage has years of experience helping homeowners eliminate all kinds of pests, especially termites.
