Many people are familiar with the common pests known as termites, but not as many are familiar with termite swarmers. Termite swarmers are the winged version of termites that are produced during the spring and summer months. Once they leave their nest, termite swarmers love to swarm to any wood source available. We’ll walk through how to identify these pests and how to keep them away from your home.
Are Termite Swarmers Dangerous?
While termite swarmers are not dangerous in and of themselves, they can indicate the probable presence of active termites. Active termites are dangerous and can cause structural damage to your home. If you have seen termite swarmers flying around your home or business, there is a strong chance that you have an active termite infestation. Even if you have only seen dead termite swarmers or wings of them laying around on things such as countertops or window sills, the termite swarmers could still be a present issue and lead to an active termite colony. When you spot signs of termite infestation, don’t wait around. Our pest control experts at Clegg’s Pest Control are here to remove termites from your home and prevent future infestation.
