Generally shortly before and after the annual rains, winged reproductive termites, the so-called Alates, emerge and make a short mating flight. Swarming termites are usually attracted to bright light and can thus be found near windows. After mating they shed their wings, which are another tell-tale sign of termite presence
Shelter Tubes –
Termites are very sensitive to changes in humidity. That is why they build mud tubes to protect themselves from sunlight, predators and to maintain convenient humidity levels. These tubes are a good sign of an ongoing termite infestation.
As termite workers consume wood, they create honey combed galleries which run parallel to the grain of the wood. There is often more damage than at first thought due to their secretive lifestyle and consumption of wood from the inside out.
People often confuse termites with winged ants, especially when they swarm. Key differences include:
The bodies of ants have a narrow constriction or waist, termites do not.
Termite wings are of equal length, ants have a long pair of wings and a short pair of wings.
All ants have elbowed antennae and termites have straight antennae.
