Adult reproductive termites are dark-brown to blackish insects. Commonly referred to as “swarmers”, the job of reproductive termites is to mate and start new colonies. Termite swarmers may or may not have wings, as their wings often are shed shortly after flight. Termite swarmers can enter homes through open doors or windows. Termite swarms can occur throughout the year, but are most commonly seen between the months of May and June in Charleston, SC.
Termites work 24 hours/7 days a week at damaging the wood in and around a structure. Five billion dollars of damage is the estimate each year!
Termites really love moisture; avoid moisture accumulating around the foundation of your home. Divert water away with properly functioning downspouts, gutters and splash blocks. Reduce humidity in crawl spaces with proper ventilation. Prevent shrubs, vines and other vegetation from growing over and covering vents. Remove old tree stumps and roots around and beneath the building. Most importantly, eliminate any wood contact with the soil. An 18-inch gap between the soil and wood portions of the building is ideal. It’s always an excellent idea to routinely inspect the foundation and other wood areas of your home for signs of termite damage.
