Flying termites??IN Nebraska??
Was at a friends house the other night. Parked along a street and noticed these masses all along the curb line. They were crawling with with huge ant hills and a third of them,,, about,,, were winged ants or insects,,,cause we were real unsure of what they really were. Carpenter friend said he thought they were flying termites. Then walked over to their HUGE dieing Maple tree. They were crazy amount of them crawling in and out of the root sections. It was REALLY loaded with them!! Homeowners wife just freaked and got some insecto squirtem from garage and squirted them (more like drowned them) she hates them!! Didnt sem to faze many of them,,,still wiggling after 10 minutes.
I always thought flying termites didnt really exist and true termites NEVER exposed themselves to outside air,light???Always lived within there mud tunnels etc. What sorta looks like an ant with wings,,,sorta!! Big they were,hard to miss,,twice the size of the regular big ants there!! How do you tell the difference?? IF these were true termites there is ALOT of biz to be had in THAT subdivision!!(Not interested,,,not MY job) Thanks,- just don-
