Drip, drip, drip.
That's a big open sign for bugs to start invading your home.
Duane Dunbar, Service Center Manager at Arrow Exterminators says, "Moisture is really a key. All insects are attracted to moisture."
Duane Dunbar has been treating termite problems for over 20 years.
He says the wet Winter we've had in the CSRA has set the stage for a lot more bugs this Spring.
"Bug-wise, termite-wise things seem to be at an increase," said Dunbar.
Dunbar says the more sub-divisions that pop up where termites and bugs live-
The more homeowners' have to worry about.
"We continue to put homes in other areas to where the pests are and where they live," said Dunbar.
Dunbar says keeping storm debris away from your foundation is important to keep the bugs away.
But it also helps to hire a professional.
"We're kind of invading their territory and with that it's important to have some type of professional do an evaluation of your home around your property just to ensure that everything is okay," said Dunbar.
It isn't warm and humid outside yet.
But with Spring right around the corner it's only a matter of time before the bug swarming begins.
"With the warmer nights that are coming in the very, very near future that the pests will really, really become active," said Dunbar.
Dunbar says the same goes for wood and concrete eating termites around your home.
"The termites this time of year will start their swarming process where their kings and queens will swarm out of the nests and try to start their new termite colonies," said Dunbar.
