Termites are social insects and live in groups called colonies. These colonies consist of termites that are assigned different roles including soldiers, reproductive, nymphs, and “false workers.” For homeowners, a termite swarm is the most visible sign of a termite infestation. When swarming, thousands of termites swarm out of their nests with one objective, to find a mate and build a nest in hopes to eventually start a colony. Colonies produce swarms once they have reached a certain size based on the number of workers in the colony.
Termites Found in Florida
Identifying the different termite species found locally is important because treatment depends on the type of termites found in your home. Treatment can differ in products used, application method and the products used to eradicate the termite colony. If you suspect you may have termites, the highly-trained professionals at Personalized Pest Control will expertly identify and recommend treatment plan that fits your needs.
Swarms of Drywood termites are generally smaller than subterranean termite swarms. Drywood termites infest dry wood and do not require contact with the soil. The subterranean species must nest in the soil or near a water source to survive. These termites swarm in the daylight and home owners are likely to notice these creatures swarming. Drywood termites generally swarm in the spring and are attracted to lights and TVs. Homeowners may notice discarded wings accumulating around window sills or in spider webs.
Subterranean termite swarms are one of the larger swarms as these colonies often produce thousands of swarmers. The large number of swarmers and their preference to swarm during daylight hours make them easily noticeable to homeowners. The subterranean species must nest in the soil or near a water source to survive.
The presence of Dampwood termites not as easy to identify as other species of termites. Dampwood termites do not generally nest inside homes because they prefer wood with an extremely high moisture content—for example: utility poles. In most cases, a trained professional will be able to identify the presence of Dampwood termites before a homeowner will ever notice the swarm.
