Are Termites Attracted to Light?
Termites ARE attracted to light.
More Info: Swarming winged-termites are attracted to light and will often be seen hovering near doors, porch lights, or windows. To ascertain if you have a termite problem on your hands, watch where the termites emerge during the late winter or early spring. If they are attracted to your porch light from a nearby tree or stump then you likely don't have a house infestation. If they are emerging from the foundation or porch decking you likely need to call an exterminator.
Once the termites break off their wings to mate, the pair will look for a suitable place to start a colony where wood meets soil. These termites are not attracted to the light.
