Oftentimes the first sign of a termite infestation, termite swarms will quickly get a homeowner’s attention. Termite swarms are usually seen in Mississippi in the months of February, March, April and May as the weather warms up. A termite swarm is a positive indicator for an established termite colony somewhere close to your home.
What do termite swarmers look like? They are winged insects usually dark in color. It is common for swarming termites and ants to be confused. Stay tuned for next week’s blog on how to distinguish a termite from an ant.
What should I do if I notice a swarm? If your home is currently under a termite contract, contact your termite company to request an inspection and to discuss treatment options. Not under contract? Synergy² provides cutting edge termite control options including no-dig termite injection systems and innovative “green” termite baiting systems.
