Formosan termites are swarming!!!!!!

Formosan Termites

Wow! Formosan termites are swarming all over Baton Rouge, Gonzales and Livingston. I have been to several homes this week with swarmers. The amber colored and 3/8 inch long insects swarm from their colony at dusk from the end of April to the end of June each year. Their goal is to make new colonies in the soil and begin to consume wood. A mature colony can eat 1000 pounds of wood a year! If you own a home, make sure it has been treated for native and formosan termites. Home owner’s insurance does not pay for termite damage.
