If you are finding discarded insect wings all over your house, or if you are seeing small, winged insects emerging from your walls, it is very likely that you are dealing with a termite swarm. These winged termites are the reproductive caste of the termite colony and they are taking flight in search of a mate to start a new colony. There is no need to panic, as these termites cannot hurt you, nor do they damage wood. However, their presence does mean that you have a termite problem in your home. If you have seen termites or the signs of a termite swarm at your home, contact Parkway Pest Services!

Leave your home in the hands of the New York termite control experts.

Termites

  • Have straight antennae

  • Have a broad waist

  • Have four wings of equal size

Ants

  • Have elbowed antennae

  • Have a thin, pinched waist

  • Have 2 large wings and 2 small wings
