What is Termite Swarm Season?
Each year social insects like termites and carpenter ants have a time where the young leave the colony, strike out on their own and try to make it in the world. Think of it as graduation for these pesky insects. It is known as the swarm, and it typically happens in the spring—coincidentally, at the same time the forsythias bloom their cheery yellow blossoms.
What’s flying around my yard?
As the winter winds down, populations in healthy termite colonies begin to swell, and the young prepare to leave, growing wings for their journey into the great wide open. They hide out in the dirt, waiting for conditions to be perfect—warm weather, damp soil and low winds. When things line up, they spring out of the nest and fly out to hook up, breed and settle down to raise a termite family of their own. The bad news is that if you see these swarming termites, chances are you already have a healthy population of wood destroyers on your property.
Why are there so many winged insects around my window?
The hormone-driven winged termites are programmed to seek light, so there is often a conglomeration of them around windows, doors or lights. If they have wings you know they are swarming from a colony nearby.
What do I do if I see flying termites?
Don’t panic. Call Ace Walco right away and schedule a free inspection. We will send a certified professional over right way to check it out. Because termites are so aggressive it is important not to waste any time.
The vernal equinox comes on March 20th of this year, marking the astronomical first day of spring. As the rays of the sun begin to hit the earth at higher angles, the snow melts and the animal kingdom begins their seasonal awakening. This can mean trouble for homeowners, but there are some things you can do to prevent springtime pest invasions.

I called yesterday as I notice that there was an insect issue in my apartment. Everyone at Ace Walco was so nice & professional. They had someone come out right away (the same day) for an estimate and was even able to schedule a treatment appointment for the next day (which was Friday of Memorial Day Weekend!!!) to take care of the problem. Gaye, James & Andre thank you so much - I never had an issue like this and appreciate your help, knowledge and assistance. I would recommend this company to anyone in need of an exterminator!

On 4/19/18 your service technician, Walter Borda, serviced our termite baiting system.

When your taking care of an elderly parent who lives far away, its good to know that you can count on ace walco. I set up the appointment, they went to my mothers home and took care of the problem. Thanks again.
I called this company in a panic a couple of days ago because I had ants coming into my house. Some had wings! A real person answered the phone. She gave me some good advice over the phone with no pressure to book a visit. But I went ahead because my problem was freaking me out. The technician named Javier came promptly this morning. He was thorough and he explained everything.He was knowledgeable and calm. Now I am so relieved. Price for the service was under other estimates I'd been given.
they did a great job and were very friendly and treated my home as if it were there own.
Our service tech, Dean, was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely thorough, took so much time to explain everything to me, and was extremely pleasant. The fact that AceWalco employs people like Dean will make me refer the company to all of my friends and family! Thanks for such great service.
Natasha did an inspection today.....and she is the most pleasant, knowledgable and helpful person I could have had for this job. She put my mind at ease since I have not had an inspection since Ace Walco did it many years ago. I would recommend your company to anyone who needs this service. It was a most complete inspection by a most delightful person.
To whom it may concern,
This is to inform you that I am getting exceptional service from Mr. Assalam. He never cuts corner and goes above and beyon his call of duty to better serve customers. He is exceptionally good. People like him are asset to the firm.
Excellent overall experience with Ace Walco commencing with Devon, the representative who performed a thorough inspection, followed by Kim, who answered my questions and scheduled a convenient and timely appointment and finally Hector, the technician who promptly eradicated the hornet problem. Every member of the Ace Walco team was knowledgeable, patient, considerate and a consummate professional! Pricing was fair and the ValPak coupon was accepted without a problem. I purchased the TriPak Program and believe it to be very cost effective. Kudos and my sincere appreciation for a job well done!!!
Devastation sets in when you have a house for years only to be told you have termites. Ace Walco came highly recommended and all I can say is Thank God that episode is over.
my neighbor recommended acewalco to me.i am sooo glad i took her advice.the little critters are gone.thanks for a great job!
had problems with flying ants, went on the internet, found an exterminating company and a FRIEND FOR LIFE. SUPER JOB, WALTER... KUDOS TO WALTER!
I was devastated when I found out we had bed bugs, but Devon was my savior for helping me through the process like an expert. He walked me through each step with patience and understanding of the position I was in. I contacted several other pest control companies and all were pushing chemical this, chemical that. But Devon showed me there was another option--the heat treatment. It was new to me, but he explained it well and now I am bed bug free and not ashamed to go out any more. Thanks guys for all your help!
This crew is one of the nicest most respectful Exterminators I've ever come across. They are the best,i wish there were more like them around :)

We have Miguel as our service rep. and are very satisfied with his work performance. He is very intuitive and very knowledgable.
Miguel is a employee of your company, is very nice, reliable and good worker! Good job!!!
We realized for the first time in 5 years since living here that there was an issue with mice. We placed a call and a rep not only was at our house with an estimate the next day-but was able to start step 1 in an effort to take care of the problem on HIS visit. I signed up immediately for his Tri Pak plan which covered for many issues (such as ants, bees, carpenter ants, any bug or rodent really) for $500.00 LESS than those other companies you see value pak coupons for!! My mother recommended them highly and now I would. Thank You Ace Walco!!!!
We've been a customer of Ace Walco for over 10 years and have been very happy with the quality of service we've received. The technicians are on time, efficient and always happy to answer questions. They are very accommodating when we have 'bug emergencies' and take care of them quickly.
I highly recommend Ace Walco! We called them after seeing termites and they were here within a day. The customer service on the phone was wonderful and the technician that came to the house was extremely knowledgeable, very helpful and polite.
I would absolutely use them again.
We called three companies for estimates. Ace Walco was the most reasonable and we were very pleased with the service and knowledge.
They are very professional and took very good care of us.
I would highly recommend Ace Walco to anyone and we will definitely be using them again!
