Termites are swarming in New Orleans metro area It is that time of year when New Orleanians are seeing lots of swarming termites. The formosan termites are attracted to light.

Countdown Begins for 9th Annual ICUP EventWe get our first major swarm around Mother's Day and run through May. Those swarms will last into June, July and even some termites in August. When we were sampling in the French Quarter we'd always get a few termites in August. Dr. Ring says there's not a whole lot we can do to prevent termite swarms. "There's nothing really you can do to stop the swarms around your home," Ring said. "You want to make sure the structure is treated." "We have two really major ways of managing termites," Ring said. "One is you put a barrier around the structure, that's a liquid termiticide. If it's a repellent termiticide, it repels them, they don't go through it. If it's a non-repellent termiticide, it does not repel them, they go through it and get killed."
