Eastern Subterranean Termites swarm from February to May, which is earlier than other parts of the country because of Georgia’s warm, humid climate. Termites tend to swarm just after rainfall.

Why do termites swarm?

During a swarm, a large number of winged termites simultaneously leave their home through holes in the soil or through mud tubes that lead from their nest. They leave their original nest to find a new home in order to start a new colony. The original colony still remains to rebuild its numbers.
