ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Warm, moist conditions are breeding grounds for reproductive termites known as swarmers.

Adam's Pest Control employees are inspecting homes for areas where reproductive termites breed. They include areas of heavy foliage.

"Swarmers love to go to areas with a high level of moisture and cellulose material which can be hot areas, dirt filled porches, but we really see them anywhere throughout the house," said Stewart Sinyard with Adam's Exterminators.

The reproductive termites are most active now, during the months of March through May, and will cause damage to homes if left untreated.
