Swarm After the Rain

Southern California is prone to drought and residents here are always very excited when the rains finally come. We wait so long and are so relieved, but we completely forget what it means to the pest industry. Many times after that first nice rain a swarm of little black bugs with oversized wings appears. These are the arch-enemy of all decent termite operators; subterranean termites!

After a rain when the sun comes out nice and warm, they feel just like we all do. Let’s get outside and stretch. And they do in hordes. A healthy colony of subterranean termites can produce thousands of swarmers. The air can be so filled with them, you might feel you have trouble breathing!
