Used the old clothes hanger technique to find this underground water line. Sad thing is that it was found within 5 minutes, but I didn’t dig deep enough. Ended up digging for hours more before deciding to dig deeper in the original spot! Not sure if the clothes hanger trick works but in this case it sure seems like it was trying to say where the water line was right from the start. #waterwitching #dowsing #DeRidder #Leesville #FortPolk

We came home from the Rosepine t-ball game last night to discover what looked like little black ant in-between the logs in our cabin. When I woke up this morning I decided to investigate, and I discovered lots of little winged insects on my porch. Here are a few pictures and a video:
What you see here are swarming termites. They are not only active here in DeRidder right now, but I’ve seen people complaining about them in northwest Louisiana as well.
If you see these in your house does it warrant action from you?
Yes, you have an infestation that needs to be mitigated.
Are the termites eating the wood in your house?
No, termite swarmers are winged and looking to recolonize right now. According to the University of Kentucky swarmer termites do not eat wood.
How do I know these are termites?
Because the body is more straight than segmented like an ant, the antenna are curved instead of crooked like an ant, and the wings are of equal length instead of unequal length like an ant.
Where did I learn about this?
In an article I read from the University of Kentucky titled “Termite Control: Answers for Homeowners”.
I’m calling my termite people Monday morning.
First time I’ve ever seen the batter on deck not only practice swinging, but practice the run to first base as well. #tball #deridder #rosepine #leesville #fortpolk
