These home invaders actually serve a purpose in nature. They digest wood and other cellulose material, breaking down dead trees and vegetation.
That's great - until the cellulose they try to break down is part of your home. Then it's time for action.

Termites are social insects and live in colonies with specific roles. There are workers, soldiers, reproductives and even queens.
As a colony matures, it may release winged males and females – or “swarmers.” If they survive, swarmers will settle, shed their wings and form a new colony.
Swarming season occurs in late spring through fall depending on the species and geographic location.
