Termite Swarm Season

The difference between a Termite vs. Ant.
Termite swarm season is here. This is when a mature termite colony is getting ready to reproduce to start new termite colonies. Swarming is triggered by environmental condition when temperatures get into the 70's and sometimes after a rain storm. You could either see winged termites in the hundreds or thousands and in some cases you will find discarded wings around you window sills. You can also sometimes find mud tubes or swarm castles coming out of your walls or woodwork in and on your home. Ants also swarm to start new colonies. You can see the difference between winged ants and winged termites in this picture. If you think you may have termites gives us a call (704) 877-3571
