Yes, it is termite season in South Florida. This is the time of year when termites are swarming all around and when they are most visible. Are you seeing termites?
How to spot termites in South Florida?
When people initially spot termites, they typically see the swarmer kind of termite. This version looks like a small ant but with tiny wings. The difference with the termite is that the wings are transparent and rounded at the top.
The adult version of these swarmer termites is black or dark brown with a pinched waist and have a straight antenna along with wings that are uneven in length.
What time of day can you spot termites?
Drywood termites are typically most active at night during the dusk and dawn hours and can be spotted around the lighted areas of the dwelling. Whereas the Subterranean termites swarm during the day and can easily be seen after a rainfall or spring shower. Subterranean termites are most visible in the springtime.
Invasive Formosan termites swarm at night and are generally at their peak in the late spring and summer. Conehead termites form a colony and travel in groups at nice. They can typically be seen in the dark on exposed surfaces near their food sources.
