When Do Drywood Termites Swarm in Florida?
Winged drywood termites are most likely to swarm in the late spring and summer. Every year in Florida, the swarming season for subterranean termites begins in early March and lasts until the end of the month. Since Florida is home to more termite species than any other state in the US, the state’s summers are plagued by massive swarms of different species. However, we have received reports of swarming termites at all times of the year, so this isn’t the only time of year you might see them.
South Florida, and much of Florida in general, is typically humid and warm all year, making it difficult to detect a termite season. There is currently no evidence explaining why termites chose these times to swarm homes; therefore, it is important to take precautions against all termite species as soon as possible.
