What Are Termite Swarmers?

what are termite swarmers

Many people are familiar with the common pests called termites, but we get asked often “what is the difference in termites and termite swarmers?”, and “why do I have them?”. As your local pest control heroes, we pride ourselves in knowing and educating our community about the many various forms of pests, including pesky termites. 

So, what are 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. This could be an old stump outdoors or rotting beams under your house. 

Termite Control

Are termite swarmers dangerous?

While being very annoying bugs, termite swarmers are not dangerous in and of themselves. They do, however, indicate the probable presence of active termites, which 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. Call us today to set up a FREE initial inspection. We will send out a specialist to assess your situation and come up with the best plan for action! 

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! We can come to your home or business and help you identify if you have any active termites or termite swarmers. Contact us below or read on for more information about termite swarmers.

How do I get rid of termite swarmers?

If you are seeing termite swarmers flying in or around your home, getting a licensed pest control professional to your home or business is the best option for you. Termite swarmers more often than not indicate the presence of a termite colony, and home remedies just do not cut it for those pests! At Cleggs Pest Control, we offer FREE initial inspections and would love to service your home or business. We have many different extermination methods, and we can decide which method would work best for you. We also offer preventative plans to keep these bugs at bay in the future. Contact us today!
