Termites May appear in South Jersey as Early March

Here in South Jersey termites may start swarming in March and can continue any time up through June. Generally ants will swarm later than termites beginning in late May and continuing through out the summer. If you have swarmers you can tell weather they are ants or termites with a quick and easy examination. Take note to see if the wings are detached from the body. A termite will shed his wings where as the ant will not. Also examine the body parts. An ant will have three distinct parts, the head, thorax and abdomen, the thorax of a termite is hard to tell from the abdomen so it appears to have only two.
