Pictures of Termites

Worker TermitesWe celebrated the first official day of spring this week with a nice dusting of snow and temperatures barely above freezing. Nevertheless, the warm days of spring will be arriving soon and nature will come alive out of its deep thaw. Rather appropriately, we also celebrated another event this week – Termite Awareness Week. Every year the week-long observance by the National Pest Management Association helps bring to the light the havoc termites wreak throughout the United States.

As your local pest control experts, we here at Ehrlich take pride in being our customers’ resource for all things insects, including termites. The wood-hungry insects are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage every year and are extremely difficult to control without professional training and equipment. While termites are well known and feared by homeowners, the average person most likely has no idea what a termite actually looks like. What makes things more confusing is that termites look very similar to a few other insects, including flying ants. Similar to our previous gallery of bed bug pictures, we’ve compiled a collection of termite pictures for you to peruse. Enjoy!
