Termites are wood-destroying organisms that can be found flourishing in sub-tropical and tropical climates around the globe. Although there are many different species of organisms that destroy wood in Southern California (carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, dampwood termites, Formosan termites, and more), most homeowners become familiar with our two most common structural pests: drywood and subterranean termites. The species are nearly identical in appearance: body length of 1/2 to 2/3, beadlike antennae that are straight (not elbowed like a winged ants), and, on the swarming termites that fly the coop each year, two pairs of smoky, clear wings that are equal in length and width. These wings snap off easily and can often be found on window sills and near other natural light that are sources sought by swarming termites as they attempt to expand the colony. We provide termite control inSan Diego County,Orange County, andRiverside County.

If you see a swarm of termites in late summer or autumn (between the months of September and November), you are probably hosting a mature colony of drywood termites.

If you see a swarm of termites in late winter or early spring (between the months of February and April), you are probably hosting a mature colony of subterranean termites.
