Local exterminator warns of Formosa termite swarms


The Formosa termite swarm has begun across the state of Louisiana and is expected to continue through Mother’s Day, May 12, 2019.

Rain and flooding create many problems; This includes the high probability of washing away the termite protection. Termite protection is vital in Louisiana. Insurance coverage varies, but in some cases policies provide coverage for replenishing previously installed termite barriers and water-damaged wood protection treatments.

Coptotermes formosanus or Formosa termites belong to the genus Coptotermes, which comprises a total of more than 3100 termite species. Formosan is the most economically harmful and geographically widespread species that can be quite dangerous to any cellulosic structure.
