5. Formosan Swarms: Don’t Let Them Get To You
Recently, there has been an abundance of Formosan termite swarms in the area that have been disrupting  our daily lives. In a recent interview on WKRG in Mobile, Austin Key, VP of BugMaster, talked about recent  swarms. “These Formosan termites are not the ones who eat up your home, but are more for mating purposes. If you are caught in a swarm, turn on one bright light to draw them towards. To keep the swarms outside, Don’t turn your porch lights on unless you’re expecting company. Keep your drapes, your blinds closed and just limit as much light as possible.” If you’re having swarms in your area and want to be outside, try putting a larger light away from the house to draw termite swarms away.
