In the heat of the summer, the termite population begins their increased feeding rituals all across the United States. Since termites eat every day, all day, termites can cause serious havoc in your home. Land Pride Part wants to help you decipher the difference between a suspected termite colony invasion in your abode, and just a few deceased flying ants.
Piles of Wings
Termites are wood (cellulose) eating insects that are off-white colored and live in colonies. A few hundred could be in a colony up to a few million! The wings of the termite are a great way to decipher these wood-eaters from regular flying ants. If you happen to see a pile of wings in the corner of the kitchen this is the sign of a possible termite infestation. Unlike flying ants, the termites will shed their wings once they have settled into the new colony.
