What Do Formosan Termites Look Like?

Formosan Termites Building a Colony

Alates, or swarmers, are about 5/16 inches (14-15mm) in overall length, including their wings. Their bodies are pale yellow to brownish-yellow in color. They have translucent wings that are densely covered with small hairs.

Formosan termite soldiers have heads that are rounded on the sides and tapered toward the front, whereas indigenous subterranean termites have rectangular heads. Their mandibles lack teeth.

Infestation and Prevention

Signs of a Formosan Termite Infestation

There are a few red flags signaling a Formosan termite problem. The first sign that an area is infested with Formosans is the presence of swarmers or winged reproductives. Swarmers are often attracted to lights, so homeowners should keep an eye out for them (and their discarded wings) near windowsills, doors, lights, and vents.

Formosan Termite Damage

Another sign of a Formosan termite infestation is damaged wood that sounds hollow when tapped. The wood often appears to have been eaten away along the grain pattern.
