Sudden changes in temperature can be problematic.  Every year, there are gardens all over the United States that get shocked into oblivion by a late frost.  Birthday parties that are planned around a swimming pool or water park can quickly become rescheduled because of a sneaky weekend cold front.  Or maybe sleeping with the windows open on Monday, the air conditioner running on Wednesday, and an extra blanket on Friday.

These days temperature anomalies seem to pop up with more frequency than ever before, but what do these fluctuations in temperature do to pests like termites?  Well, temperature plays an important role in how termites behave.  When temperatures suddenly change, it can cause termites to react accordingly.  Termites usually swarm based on how favorable the weather conditions are.  If conditions vary, then most likely swarming times will happen at different times.
