It is common knowledge among our termite exterminators and inspectors that termite swarms number in the millions and make up massive clouds that are large enough to be downright scary. However, only recently did we discover that these swarms are so large and dense that they can show up on radar screens. Thanks to the National Weather Service in New Orleans, we can see just how much they blot out the radar screens when they swarm.
We’re used to seeing bird flocks on radar at sunrise, but it looks like insect swarms are getting picked up tonight. pic.twitter.com/ohord8G8lJ
