There are parts of Australia where termites can be active for the full 12 months of the year. However, in many areas most reports of swarms start coming in of swarms around November which can continue on warm humid evenings right up until the Easter break. I encountered my first swarm this spring in mid-October on the south coast of NSW. Pest managers will be receiving increased calls coincident with termite swarms being seen.

Experience has shown that advice on the removal of conducive conditions together with the utilisation of a dual and having the flexibility of an in-conjunction utilisation of termite baiting / monitoring and with a chemical barrier treatment options in your termite management offering provides the pest manager with good customer retention and ongoing revenue.
