Watching Out For Winged Termites In Texas

Watching Out For Winged Termites In Texas

Once a termite colony reaches capacity, termite swarmers will take off in search of a place to establish a new colony. These swarmers are winged termites, and typically fly out once a year under ideal weather conditions. If you suddenly start seeing masses of flying insects around the foundation, gathered around windows, under your deck on a humid overcast day, you are likely dealing with a termite swarm.

What to Do If You Spot Winged Termites

There is no need to immediately panic if you see these flying termites around your Texas home, just because you see a termite swarm flying around your home doesn’t necessarily mean that you have an active termite infestation or termite damage yet. The swarm may just be a sign that the original termite colony is somewhere very close to your property. However, seeing termites swarming around your home can certainly be a sign of a future infestation. If you see discarded insect wings in or around your home, you may have more reason to worry as termite swarmers only shed their wings after they have mated and found a new place to establish their colonies.
