A: I see swarming ants. What does this mean?

Q: Swarming occurs when winged male and female reproductive ants fly out of the nest and mate. Only mature colonies produce swarmers, which usually occurs two or more years after the establishment of the colony. If you are seeing swarming ants, it is best to contact a licensed pest control professional for help in identifying the species and choosing an effective treatment to rid your home of the infestation.
Remember, winged ants are often confused with termites. Only a pro will be able to confirm proper identification and recommend any next steps in terms of treatment.
