Termite hatchlings in Boynton Beach, Florida

One of the clearest indications of a termite activity is the presence of termite eggs in and around a property. Identifying termite eggs on a property is a strong sign that termite control services are needed.

A termite queen can live up to 25 years and produce more than 1,000 eggs in a single day. In a lifetime, a termite queen can lay up 9 million eggs. Termite eggs are tiny but are visible to the naked eye. The difficulty is that termite eggs are often hidden away and not very easy to find without professional training.

Termite eggs are commonly white or light brown in color and translucent. They are typically found within termite mud tubes or the wooden galleries they create. The eggs are most often placed in a centralized location. When inspecting a termite infestation, clusters of termite eggs have been described to look like piles of white powder to the naked eye.
