A termite problem can cause major damages to both the exterior and interior of your home. Property and structural damage are two major issues these pests can cause that can lead to major expenses, so preventing this type of damage is key. Termite swarmers refer to termites with white wings that are on the search for a new home to expand the termite colony, which could mean bad news for you if they decide to make your home their new home.

Why Termite Swarmers Should Be Handled ASAP

If you’ve found signs of termite swarmers in or around your home, such as shed wings by windowsills, chances are they came from a nearby colony. If you suspect that there are termite swarmers in your home, it’s important to act quickly. While it is possible that these termites could die in your home, that is not guaranteed, and you should therefore reach out to the professionals to make sure the problem is taken care of.

It’s important to not try to handle termite swarmers on your own. Killing them by yourself will likely not solve the problem, as there could very well be other termite swarmers you didn’t notice. Plus, it’s also possible that, in addition to the termite swarmers, there could still be other worker termites already damaging the wood around your home. Here at NC Pest Control, we know how to handle termite swarmers as well as what to look for when assessing for termite presence around your property, so call us today if you suspect a termite issue.
