Do Termites Fly?

Several of the most common types of termites do have wings, and therefore are capable of flight. However, when winged termites swarm, their wings will fall off. If you encounter a pile of wings close to a congregation of what looks to be ants, you are probably looking at termites that have shed their wings while swarming.
