Seeing flying termites in your property is one of the first signs of a termite infestation. Most people confused them as flying ants when in fact they are swarmers or alates.

Male and female swarmers or alates leave their main colony to find new location to establish their own colony. And this new location can be your home or nearby area.

Termites are attracted to light sources, so they can swarm inside your home during the night. But there are also species of termites that swarm during the day. Drywood termites prefer to swarm after rain during different season all throughout the year.


When looking for visibly signs of termites, another thing that you should lookout for are discarded wings.

Flying termites will discard their wings after finding their mate. After that, they will both look for a perfect place where they can mate and establish their own new colony.

The King and Queen termites will take care of their young until the colony will have enough soldier workers. It’s the soldier termites’ job is to feed the nursery. A fully established termite colony with their King and Queen can continue to grow and exist for up to 10 years!


Did you know that for some species of termites, the males die shortly after mating? On the other hand, the Queen can live for up to 20 years or even more! And the Queen can produce up to 30,000 live termites per DAY in an establish colony.
