When it comes to identifying flying insects, most people are trying to determine if they have 'flying ants' or 'termites'. Both of these insect pests swarm in the spring in our local area (and sometimes on unseasonably warm winter days), and are quite similar in size.
So how can you get more information if you are interested in identifying flying insects? One resource is our page that describes the key differences between flying ants and swarming termites.
A word of caution though- this is a job best left to a professional pest control inspector or technician. Termites cause millions of dollars in damage to homes in the U.S. each year, and because there is no charge for an inspection that is always in your best interest. » Schedule a free pest inspection now
