Well... today we got our largest termite swarm in 5-8 years. There were 100s if not 1000s of them and they came through any crack of the windows. I got them all over my bed. they were swarming the kitchen and anywhere on one side of the house with lights. The cane toads came out to eat them and my family had to get the fly squatters out for the ones that got into the house. I've still got wings all over my bed and have had them land all over me. I must say if I was scared of bugs that would have been the worst time of my life xD

I live in QLD Australia and we normally get 4 kinds of termites swarming here. These ones are only 7mm in length. (0.27in) Some are from 4mm right to 1.5cm long. (0.15-0.59 in)

I'm still finding more on my bed and do not look forward to sleeping soon knowing more are still around.
