Kansas City Termites Swarming Right Now!

What is a termite swarm?

Termites swarm when they are in search of finding a mate to reproduce with. Only the winged termites are reproductive and are capable of beginning new colonies. These winged termites are referred to as the “swarmer” termite. The “swarmers” leave the existing colony in which they belong to in search to begin a new colony. During the process of “swarming”, they males pair with their female mates and fly off to separate locations in hopes to birth enough termites to begin a new colony.

The best time to witness a subterranean termite swarm in Kansas City is during a hot humid evening. The drywood termites are commonly during the day after a heavy rainfall. The termites are very poor flyers and drift in the area mainly by the prevailing winds. They are attracted to light, so often you will see their wings and perhaps dead termites near lamps, windows, and other light sources. Once they land they chew off their wings and mate. The pair then try to find a wood source to infest and breed.  Unfortunately, for them, most of the termite swarmers do not survive, and are eaten by other predators such as ants, and spiders. Many of the termite swarmers do not find shelter and dry up and die.
