These swarmers aren’t dangerous to your home. The little white “maggot” looking workers you don’t see are the ones doing the damage to your home unnoticed by you. Sadly most homeowners assume when the swarmers stop then the termites are gone, but that is not true. The worker termites will still be doing their damage in your home well into the below-freezing winter nights. I like to explain termites like this: Subterranean Termites like their title live in the ground in societies similar to ants. Termites are nature's tiny wood vultures, they see your home as rotting and decaying wood matter that needs to be devoured. Your shelter is a giant Mcdonald's with express drive-through.
AKA “Mother’s Day Swarmer”, An invader Subterranean Termite brought to the US via ammo crates from Pearl Harbor post World War II. These little hitchhikers left these crates after their cruise ended in New Orleans and dived into the soil, and, as it’s said, the rest is history. These termites require the same general treatment as our Eastern Sub but they are capable of building crates and or nests in the structure wall that may have to be removed.
Formosan Termite ID:
Very identical to Eastern Subterranean Termites EXCEPT They are usually brown in color and much much larger. They tend to swarm later in the season, typically around May.
Termite service explained:
The logic is applying either a repellent or non-repellent insecticide into the soil at the entry points, and possible entry points, into your home. Generally once the chemical has been applied two things occur; first, the main termite colony in the soil is either infected or repelled to the soil, therefore, damage to your home begins to stop from the main colony. Secondly, the same thing begins to occur to the termites in your wall as well except for one small difference, this termite should lack moisture (water) which is a significantly prominent biological need of these creatures, ultimately resulting in their death.
