In early spring, as the weather turns warm and rain showers occur more frequently a frightening thing is happening without your knowledge; termite colonies are swarming. During this time of year, young adult male and female swarmer’s crop up in large groups, pair off and select a new location to build their colonies.
Once a male and female termite unites, they shed their wings as a symbol of their relationship. The remnants of their wings are the first signs that a swarm has nested near your home. If you find piles of small insect wings near your windows, doors, or light fixtures there is a good chance that a swarm of termites was near and a termite colony may be nesting in and around your home.
This is an important indicator that you should take action now before the colony expands and does serious damage to your home. Taking steps to eliminate the termites at this stage can be highly effective at preventing damage or the return of termites in the future.
