The Formosan Termite Swarm has begun throughout the state of Louisiana and is expected to last through Mother’s Day, May 12, 2019.

Rain and floodwaters bring many problems; among them is the high probability of washing away 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.

Formosan termite facts:

Coptotermes formosanus or Formosan termites belong to the genus Coptotermes which contains more than 3100 termite species altogether. Formosan is the most economically malicious and geographically spread species which can be rather dangerous to any cellulose structure.
