Formosan termites have been known to live in gigantic, extended colonies underground, subversively attacking homes, businesses, utility poles and railroad ties plus plants and live trees for a while before they are detected. Unlike native subterranean termites infesting homes and businesses, Formosan subterranean termites pose more of a threat to structures due to their immense populations that could number in the of 2-3 million members and their 300 ft. foraging range.

Formosan termites build colossal interconnected galleries in soil Living underground, Formosan termites build tunnels to interconnected foraging galleries in the soil. These tunnels can spread out in the soil under your home to other structures, woodpiles, living trees and other plants. Foraging tubes, up to ¼ inch to ½ inch in diameter, connecting structures to Formosan galleries can be clear signs of Formosan subterranean termite activity.

Swarming outside and inside: Swarming ants and termites are difficult to differentiate from each other but the main differences in appearance between termite alates and flying ant alates include:

  • Ant alates have thin waists and different sized sets of wings with a larger set on top and a smaller set below.
  • Termite alates are more broadly connected with no definitive waist and have two sets of wings that are the same size.

Swarming outside your home reminds you to contact a trusted and reliable professional pest control company to initiate ongoing termite prevention services.

If you notice termites swarming inside your home, you most likely already have an infestation and we recommend that you have a professional inspect the property immediately.
