Do Termites Fly?

A significant sign of a termite infestation would be dozens of small, flying insects that suddenly appear at the end of winter and through spring. While these could be another type of bug, they also could be mating termites.


When fertile termites mature, they develop wings. These aren't very functional and can help them fly for short bursts of time. But they're designed to catch the wind, helping termites spread to faraway places.


These termites with wings are called termite swarmers. Seeing flying termites is a great sign that you need to contact your local pest controls services again. Remember, prevention is the best protection!
