Formosan Swarms: Don’t Let Them Get To You


Recently, there has been an abundance of Formosan termite swarms in the area that have been disrupting  our daily lives. In a recent interview on WKRG in Mobile, Austin Key, VP of BugMaster, talked about recent  swarms. “These Formosan termites are not the ones who eat up your home, but are more for mating purposes. If you are caught in a swarm, turn on one bright light to draw them towards. To keep the swarms outside, Don’t turn your porch lights on unless you’re expecting company. Keep your drapes, your blinds closed and just limit as much light as possible.” If you’re having swarms in your area and want to be outside, try putting a larger light away from the house to draw termite swarms away.

With all this swarming, Memorial Day is just around the corner and we want to make sure your celebration is mosquito free. Mosquitoes and bugs can definitely put a damper on your holiday fun. If you plan on entertaining outside, you can always buy the citronella candles or tiki torches. If you plan on being outside at night, a large light clamped to a fence away from the festivities is also a good way to draw the bugs away from you.

BugMaster DIY retail stores, located in Mobile and Daphne, as well as have several products for sale to help with these little nuisances as well. The Skeeter Defeater boasts an automated Dusk/Dawn sensor to kill mosquitoes automatically when they’re most active, covering up to 300 square feet.

Another fun product is The Bug-A-Salt Insect Eradication Rifle uses ordinary table salt as a lethal projectile with accuracy range within 3 feet. Bugs will remain whole for easy clean up.
