Termite Swarm

Termite Swarm

Just after the first summer rains, swarms of FLYING TERMITES emerge from colonies established under ground. Such swarming behavior is usually synchronized by other nearby colonies so large numbers of winged termites suddenly appear. All mating for the species takes place, often over the course of a single day. The males die and the mated females disperse to attempt establishing a new colony.
