Termite Swarmers are Active in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
The number of calls for Termites has spiked as of this week. We are seeing a number of homes with termite swarmers also called Alates. These termites are reproductive termites and when you have a swarm it’s an indicator that you have termites. If they are found outside It could also mean somebody near you has termites and they have now spread to your home or business.
So what does a termite swarmer or Alate look like? Well, they have white/clear wings that are thin and these wings fall off relatively fast. The termite itself will be darker in color and have a body that is relatively the same width from head to the end of their body.
Termites are sometimes confused for being ants but they are nothing like their ant cousins. Ant’s are more segmented and have a clear break or joint between the head, body and end. Even though we are talking termites here ants can be just as destructive as termites. Carpenter Ants do damage to structures just like termites do. We can assist with both of these pests.
With spring here and more humidity the swarmers are very active. These termite colonies are spreading to start new colonies.
