Yesterday about a billion tiny flying insects emerged from a couple of nooks and crannies in the walls of our house and flew rather awkwardly off. As insect design goes, these guys were a bit of a cheap import. I looked them up though, and discovered that they are termites.
Most were emerging from chinks in the stone walls, but some from a stony crevice right inside a doorframe adjacent to the wood and now this morning some are emerging from a window frame. There is relatively little timber in our house, but the cost of our lovely new windows nearly wiped us out, and I don't want them to get hurt!
Has anybody encountered this?
I have come across a recommendation to get in touch with Giorgos at Fertility in Kalyves, and will be visiting him later this week.
I'm glad we were here for this great exodus - we're not normally here at this time of year, and we would have been none the wiser otherwise...
