Termite Swarms in San Antonio

Subterranean termites typically swarm in San Antonio from late winter to spring, often after a warm rain. Rising temperatures encourage winged termites to leave their underground nests to establish new colonies. These termites seek nesting areas near wood and soil, which provide a suitable environment for the new queen to lay eggs. Termite swarms spotted outside the house probably originate from a nest in the yard and may not indicate a problem. Swarmers discovered inside the house, however, point to an infestation in the home.

TermitesIdentifying Termite Swarms

Swarming termites often shed their wings, and homeowners may find wings and dead insects on windowsills and floors. Some species of flying ants resemble termites, making it difficult for homeowners to tell the difference between the two types of insects. Pest control professionals will quickly determine if the winged insects in question are termites or flying ants.

Because termite activity occurs deep within the wood in the house, damage can be difficult to detect. Termites, which feed on the cellulose in wood, may inflict considerable structural damage before the infestation becomes obvious. Severe termite damage may reduce the strength of a structure so that it becomes unlivable without extensive repair.

Eliminating a Termite Swarm in San Antonio

Simply killing the swarming termites will not eliminate a termite infestation. The problem requires the attention of pest control experts, who have the training and specialized equipment to deal with the infestation. These experts will quickly identify potential termite entry points that may be hidden and difficult to reach.
