Swarmer Termites Indicate Infestation!

While swarmer termites do not cause damage themselves, they are an indication that your property has been infested with termites. These types of termites live in the colony nest, which is usually underground and likely near wood. Swarmer termites can sometimes be mistaken for winged ants, so it is important to contact a knowledgeable expert in any case.

What do swarmer termites do?

Swarmer termites travel in swarms (hence the name), and fly away from their original colony to form their own group. They will shed their wings after their flight is finished, and may leave them near windows, doors, or other access points to your home or business.

How do I get rid of swarmer termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to consult a professional pest management provider as soon as possible. While swarmer termites are only an indicator of termite infestation, eradicating these pests is essential to the continued safety and structure of your home or other building.
