Few things are worse than finding out that pests have invaded your home. Fortunately for you, Action Pest Exterminating is equipped to offer professional pest control of all kinds. Our services include taking care of termite swarmers.
You probably know all about termites, but you may not have heard about swarmers before. The name itself has likely put you off already, and for good reason. Termite swarmers are flying termites. Did you ever have a termite problem and wonder “How can this get worse?” Well, nature has found a way.
The big problem with termite swarmers is that their primary function is to look around for a new place to start a colony. You do not want them to get the chance to do that. So it’s important to keep an eye out and look for termite swarmers, and it’s also important to know what to do if you spot some.
Problems Caused by Termites
Few pests can cause expensive damage quite like termites can. What’s worse is that the damage done by termites can often go unnoticed for a very long time. By the time you notice that termites are in your home, they might have already done extensive damage to the structure of your home.
This is why it’s important to act fast if you believe that you have seen a termite swarmer in your home. A termite swarmer’s presence is an indicator of worker termite activity nearby. These are the termites that cause all the damage. While worker termites generally keep themselves well-hidden, a swarmer can be a more obvious sign of a problem.
Are These Actually Swarmers?
Termite swarmers aren’t that large, so there’s always the possibility of mistaken identity. Swarming ants can look quite similar, for example. Because of this, it’s important to remember that termite swarmers tend to have a “season.” In North Carolina, we generally expect to see more termite swarming activity in the spring. If you see a flying insect at another time of year, it may not actually be a termite swarmer.
When to Call in a Pro
That being said, another type of flying pest in your home could also be troublesome. That’s why you may want to err on the side of caution and call in a professional. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when you consider the expensive damage that a termite colony can cause.
