What are Swarmers?
Aside from regular swarm cycles, there are other factors that can trigger a swarm. For example, a shortage of food and water and sometimes pesticides can cause swarmers to leave the nest. Western subterranean termites are on the constant lookout for food and can enter buildings through cracks in concrete flooring or under tile flooring with gaps less than 1/16″ wide. A newly established colony is not as active at first. After about 4 years, the colony will begin producing swarmers, which is peak season. The presence of swarmers is an indication that a large and well established colony is nearby, signaling the need for professional protection.
