The term termite swarmers sound like an enormous dark cloud of locusts coming your way to destroy everything in its path. The good news is that subterranean termite swarmers are not at all like a dark cloud of swarming locusts, but the bad news is that you should still be concerned about eastern subterranean termite swarmers - and the time of year is here for them to be prevalent.

Here in Tennessee, eastern subterranean termites are our termite of choice, so to speak, to be concerned with. These ‘swarmers’ that everyone is talking about are actually a group of termites leaving their original colony to begin their own. Usually ‘swarms’ happen in the spring season after it rains. These ‘swarmers’ leave their colony and ride upon the wind in hopes of finding a suitable mate and location for their new colony. These pests are poor flyers and just float along with the wind current.

After their ride on the wind, they land and start searching for a suitable mate. Shortly after they land their large wings fall off, they mate with their new king or queen, find the perfect spot for their new colony, then settle down to live and breed.

Eastern subterranean termites feed off the cellulose in wood, soil, and leaves. Untreated, wet, moist, or water-damaged wood is an exciting delicacy for them. They prefer this over any other food source. They aren’t picky at all where they find this yummy treat. They will devour your playground equipment, picket fence, garden shed, or worse yet, your home or business.

These teeny, silent destroyers often tunnel into your property without you even being aware of their existence. They are ‘subterranean’, which means they are underground. They are rarely seen outside above ground. They can tunnel right up to your exterior wood wall and be completely under the cover of earth and begin to feast away on any wood that they can get at.

The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites are responsible for around $5 billion dollars in property damages here in the U.S. each year. Sadly, the majority of these cases are not covered by property insurance. So that $5 billion is coming directly out of the property owner’s pockets. Wow!
