Article Summary: 

ermites remain active year-round, causing significant structural damage in Canada's southern and coastal regions. Homeowners need to know the cold weather habits of termites, watch for signs of infestation, and take year-round preventative measures. Termites in heated buildings or soil near heated structures do not change much from summertime levels as temperatures drop. Prevent infestation by stacking wood away from the house, maintaining good drainage, mulching at least 40cm away from foundations, and trimming trees that contact roofs or home exteriors.
