ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - It begins! Florida termites are swarming across the state, with reports of infestations spiking this month.

With the possibility for such catastrophe it is only prudent for homeowners to seek professional Florida pest control.

Few homeowners realize just how serious an infestation by Florida termites can be. Florida's warm and humid climate is the perfect breeding ground for these pests. They are extremely apt invaders, with the ability to enter any home with an opening as little as 1/64th of an inch. It only takes two Florida termites to start an entire colony, and they are commonly found entering homes through attics, foundation vents, windowsills, concrete cracks and utility boxes.

The wide misconception remains that these pests only eat wood. The fact is that Florida termites will eat almost anything with a cellulose base, including cardboard, paper and a wide array of other common house hold items. Specifically, Florida Drywood termites are considered among the most destructive variety of Florida termites. They have a tendency to create multiple colonies within the same structure, and do not require any contact with soil. This means that they are immune to do-it-yourself treatments.
