Termite Swarm

What is Termite Swarm Season?

Each year social insects like termites and carpenter ants have a time where the young leave the colony, strike out on their own and try to make it in the world.  Think of it as graduation for these pesky insects.  It is known as the swarm, and it typically happens in the spring—coincidentally, at the same time the forsythias bloom their cheery yellow blossoms.  

 

What’s flying around my yard?

As the winter winds down, populations in healthy termite colonies begin to swell, and the young prepare to leave, growing wings for their journey into the great wide open.  They hide out in the dirt, waiting for conditions to be perfect—warm weather, damp soil and low winds.  When things line up, they spring out of the nest and fly out to hook up, breed and settle down to raise a termite family of their own.  The bad news is that if you see these swarming termites, chances are you already have a healthy population of wood destroyers on your property.

 

Why are there so many winged insects around my window?

The hormone-driven winged termites are programmed to seek light, so there is often a conglomeration of them around windows, doors or lights.  If they have wings you know they are swarming from a colony nearby.
