Termite Swarms: Call an Exterminator to Stop a Possible Infestation

Just when you thought you could finally enjoy the warm weather in Phoenix, you start to see these winged insects flying around your house. Since warm weather draws the termites out, it may very well be possible that you have an infestation somewhere near your house. This might actually give you the upper hand. When you see termite swarms bursting from beneath the ground and flying about, don’t just ignore them. Call for an exterminator, instead, to stop these unwelcome guests from taking over your home.

Termite Swarms Call an Exterminator to Stop a Possible Infestation

Identify the Problem

The first thing you should do is to identify the problem. You might not actually have termites but flying ants instead. Before you panic and call an exterminator, try to catch some insects so you can identify them. Termites don’t have a taste for flesh so you won’t be in any danger. If they’re too fast for you, you can always gather up the wings that fall to the ground for identification. Taking a picture and comparing it to the ones you find on the internet would help. However, if you are unsure, it is always best to turn to an expert.

Call in the Pros

If you have identified the insects as termites, don’t attempt to take them out by yourself. Even if you keep some pretty strong insecticides in your garage, that might not be enough to keep them away.

Normally, these insects go above ground to mate but they can also come out to create a new colony. Spraying them with a can of household insecticide won’t really do much good. They only irritate the termites enough to drive them back into the ground, but before long, they’ll be out swarming your place again.

Swarms typically last for less than an hour and eventually they do stop. By then, they’re probably well on their way to adding more members to their ever growing colony. Most homeowners might be relieved that the swarms seem to have stopped, but often times that’s when you need to worry. They’ll be back again, with more mouths to feed, and posing even more danger to the wooden structures they infest. Even if the weather is not warm, they’ll continue to feed on the cellulose nutrients that happen to make up the wooden structures of the house.

This is why you need to hire an exterminator for termite treatment in your Phoenix home as soon as possible. Companies like Invader Pest Management can help put a stop to the infestation before it becomes a much bigger issue.
