Yes, and Spring is swarming season for termites. When the weather is favorable, termites will head to the skies and travel.
Termites head to the skies during Spring to mate and start new colonies. Unfortunately for Phoenix homeowners, these termite swarms could mean bad news for your home.
A termite swarm quite often can look like a swarm of flying ants, which can be confusing to a Phoenix homeowner. While flying ants do make rare appearances in the valley, it’s the swarming termites that you need to be aware of, as they can cause expensive damage to your home.
If you so see a swarm of termites and than they mysteriously disappear, you might feel at ease, thinking they’ve flown out of the area. In fact, if you see a swarm of termites suddenly disappear, this is cause for huge alarm….
This probably means that the swarm has landed and could have found a new home in your home.
