Flying TermitesSpringtime is termite swarm season. Winged termites can suddenly appear inside your home. You will often find them on window sills and near other light sources. While they look like flying ants, they are most likely termites here in the Sacramento area. Call us immediately to schedule a free inspection to be sure. Save a sample insect in a plastic baggie. Spray the rest with Raid or some other household pesticide. It won't kill the termite colony but it will slow them down until we can treat your home with Termidor, the most effective guaranteed termite treatment.

If you see mud tubes on your foundation or while remodeling or cleaning the garage, it means you have termites!

No matter how old your home is, where it's located, or how it's constructed, it is susceptible to being attacked by termites. Every year they cause billions of dollars of damage in the United State alone - damage that homeowners insurance won't cover.

The black carpenter ant, Camponotus pennsylvanicus, in the east and C. modoc in the west are the most thoroughly studied species in the United States. Other species of Camponotus are distributed throughout the country. Carpenter ants are among the largest ants found in the United States, ranging from 1/8- to 1/2-inch long, the queens are slightly bigger. The workers of an established colony vary in size. They are commonly black; however, some species are red and black, solid red, or brown in color. They have one node in the petiole and a circle of tiny hairs on the tip of the abdomen. Their thorax is evenly rounded when seen from the side.

Biology: The adult winged female or queen loses her wings soon after mating with the smaller male and selects a secluded nesting site where she raises the first brood of workers. These workers are very small but assume the care of the larvae and the queen after they mature. Future workers are larger than those from the first brood because they receive better care. All workers are wingless.

Mature colonies range in size from several thousand workers to 10-15,000 including satellite nests for C. pennsylvanicus; C. modoc colonies average 10-20,000 workers up to 100,000. When raised at 90 F, black carpenter ants complete their life cycle (egg to adult) in about 60 days. Swarmers do not appear in the colony for several years, usually three to four years for C. pennsylvanicus and six to ten years for C. modoc. Swarming for these species occurs May through August and February through June, respectively.
