Flying Termites Sydney Video Transcript


Alates, or flying termites as they're commonly called, are the future kings and queens of new termites.

In Sydney, a single termite nest can have as many as four spawns during the summer, generally starting late November and finishing around the middle of February. They swarm in the evening, around 5 o'clock or 6 o'clock. They need high humidity, so generally, they swarm before an impending storm.

Many of my customers ring me up telling me they've got flying ants in the house, which end up being flying black ants. Ants generally swarm during the day, and they're smaller than flying termites, and they're black in colour instead of brown.

Out of the thousands of swarming termites, only several peers will succeed in starting a new termite nest, so if one nest swarms four times a summer and start-up seven new nests each swarm, that works out to be 28 new nests a year from one nest. Take into consideration that the termite nest lasts about 25 years or so, making it over the lifespan of a termite colony. They can swarm 700 times, starting up approximately 4900 termite nests.

An Alate's, or flying termite's lifespan, once it leaves the constant humidity of the termite nest, lasts about 20 minutes. This depends on the humidity outside the nest, so they're looking for a damp, moist environment to start a new colony as soon as they fly out from the termite nest. Trees and damp sub-floors of houses are two ideal spots to start. Because they have only 20 minutes to live, they start their new nest not too far away from where the mother nest is, usually within 100 meters radius. It takes approximately seven years for the termite nest to cause damage. They drop their wings, their bodies last a little longer, and you usually find the wings or alates around light sources.

After the swarm, there's always a feeding time for the animals. Everyone, here they go. Here's a frog or a toad having a good feed of termites. They get really fat this time of year.

Quite often, here comes the ants. The ants are having a good feed now - everyone's in on the act. When you find flying termite wings, or bodies, the alates, it's time to get a termite inspection. Not always will you have termites in the house if you find the termite wings or bodies, so don't panic. It's just time to get a termite inspection.
