Do I Have Flying Termites?

Flying termites account for an average of $5 billion of property damages each year, according to research. Since flying termites are prevalent in nearly every state, it’s no surprise that Southern California often falls victim to these pests.

How do you know if you have flying termites? The experts at 1st Stryke Pest are here to help you identify these pests.

Signs of Flying Termites

Before calling the experts in for a termite inspection there are a couple of signs to look out for.

Finding Droppings

You might have dry wood flying termites if you start seeing random piles of tiny wood pellets in or around your home that look like sawdust.

Some termites prefer to build nests in the wood of your home and hollow out areas within the wood but also create holes. They will specifically remove their excrement via these holes. Since their diet consists of wood, their excrement is primarily wood and often looks like small sawdust piles.

Noticing Swarms

Finding discarded wings near access points of your home is another key indicator to look out for when identifying flying termite swarms. Once termites land, they twist off their wings, knowing they will never need them again once they have found their new nesting grounds.
