What Are Termite Swarmers and Should They Worry You?

What Are Termite Swarmers?

If you see ants with wings, they are called termite swarmers, or alates, and are an unwelcome visitor to any property owner. When you see these insects, it is a sign that the colony is in close proximity to the property, or worse still, the property could already be infected with termites.

Termite swarmer are winged termites whose main role in life is reproducing and creating new termite colonies. They look for a suitable mate to be the future termite kings and queens. They will swarm and find suitable locations for their colonies.

Termite swarmers emerge through tubes constructed by worker termites. They range in colour from yellow to black, depending on the species. Like many other flying insects, termites are attracted to light and are often seen swarming around exterior lighting or window sills.

If you feel you have observed termite swarmers at your home or in your garden, you must contact a professional pest control company like A1 Pest Control Canberra as soon as possible.
