In Memphis TN Metro Area, we commonly see Eastern subterranean termites and, occasionally, formosan termites. Nationwide, subterranean termites are known as the most common and destructive termites.

Finding mud tubes on the exterior of your home, frass (termite droppings), discarded wings, and damaged wood are clear signs of termite activity. It is crucial to call for professional help if you see any of these signs.

Termites are most active during the spring and summer months when they swarm, mate, and establish new colonies. While they are less active during the winter due to our mild climate, termites are active every season of the year.

Termites have a unique life cycle: After a termite hatches, the nymph molts up to three times until it matures and is assigned a specific role or caste. These castes include workers, soldiers, and reproductive, or swarmer, termites.

Termites are one of the most common pests and can be found in every state but Alaska. They are most commonly found in areas with a warm and humid climate.

When termites swarm, they often spread and establish new colonies. A colony can also spread as it matures and invades your home and property.
