It's that time of year again. I just received my first call today. Termite season! What? Termites are usually a problem in the spring you say? While that is true for some types of termites, I get most calls on agricultural termites in late summer into fall. Since we've been getting sporadic rain about town the past few days, I imagine that I will be getting more questions on these in the coming days.

While agricultural termites are not usually considered a pest, large populations can cause problems in forage crops or turfgrass.
