What Type of Termite is It?
Drywood termites begin producing pellets in early summer around July. The termites begin pushing pellets out of the galleries in preparation for swarming. The galleries permeate with pellets, now they will permeate with flying termites. Drywood termites fly out of the galleries in late fall. Normally in the month of October and November. The flying Drywood termite has a black body with a redhead. It has four clear wings that often fall off when they have landed in contact with wood. What signs to Look for: Termites
Subterranean termites or triggered by rainy days. In Southern California, Westminster specifically, rainy days occur February through March.
