Termite Swarm Pictures
Eastern Subterranean Termites
All below here are 2006 or earlier.
Swarms usually occur in the Spring of the year.
They can be in numbers from a few to several thousand.
Swarmers DO NO DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME.
Swarming is a mating flight.
They will shed their wings after the flight to mate and start new colonies.
Inside swarms will usually succumb to the light, you can vacuum them up.
If you have a swarm and have not had your home inspected or treated call us today.
Swarms in the yard are normal and are not treatable, they are a part of nature.
Q) If I have a swarm what should I do?
A) You should make note of where the swarm is originating from if possible and allow them to swarm out. We suggest taking a garbage bag and placing it over the area where the swarm is occurring from and letting them swarm. Swarmers will continue until all the swarmers are out of the swarm castle. If you try to use a pesticide spray on it you will only prolong the agony and cause what will appear to be another swarm. Then call your Pest Control Company for a retreat, if you have not been treated, call a professional to handle this situation for you.
Q) My house was just treated a few months ago and I am having a swarm, why?
A) There could be several reasons this is happening, first you could have had a partial treatment and the area the swarm is coming from was not covered, second you may have been treated after the termites were already in the swarm castle and above the treated zone. In either case I would recommend calling the company that did your treatment and allow them to explain this better to you.
Q) Since my house was treated I wont ever have termites again correct?
A) No that is not correct, the products on the market today, even the Termidor that we use, has a life expectancy of about 5 to 7 years and that is all. If the company that treated your house gave you the option to renew your guarantee after the initial period I would suggest doing it. Do it for your sake and for your home's sake.
TERMITES in nature they are very productive, in your home they are very destructive!!!!
