Are Termites Still Active in the Winter Months?

The short answer is YES termites are still active in the winter months!
 
While most people have the view that termites are only active in summer, unfortunately this is not always the case. Termites do remain active all year round, even during the colder winter months. 
 
In colder regions and climates, and at certain times of the year, subterranean termites typically migrate deeper into the ground during the cold season to protect themselves with the warmth from the ground that they need to survive.
 
These termites tend not to cause as much damage because they are below the ground's surface and less active in the infrastructures of our dwellings. However, subterranean worker termites will stay close to their nests during the winter and will remain active (although not quite as active as during the warmer months).
