Just in time for termite season in Louisiana, the "Termite Terminator" is here.

In Louisiana, the peak termite swarming season typically occurs during the spring months, usually between March and May. This is when the weather starts to warm up, and the humidity levels increase, creating ideal conditions for termites to swarm and establish new colonies.

One Slidell man by the name of Kenny Ballau is getting attention for his unique way of dealing with termite swarms in his area—and you should definitely avoid trying this at home.

At first, Ballau tried extermination methods like an electric fly swatter that had little to no effect on the termites.

Ballau was clearly "heated" over the termites swarming outside of his home, so he decided to take matters (and flames) into his own hands.

Like I said earlier, the method behind his madness is not something that you should try at home, but it was enough for him to captivate WGNO viewers after his video earned him a spot on the 6 o'clock news.

As cool as it looked to watch Ballau clear out his yard with the fireballs, he says that the termites were similar to the real Terminator being that they kept coming back.

It's important to note that termite swarms can occur at any time of the year, depending on the specific species of termites and local weather conditions. For example, Formosan termites, which are prevalent in Louisiana, are known to swarm later in the year, often in June and July.

If you live in Louisiana and are concerned about termite activity on your property, it's a good idea to have regular inspections done by a licensed pest control company. They can help you identify any termite activity and recommend treatment options to protect your home from damage.

And when it comes to getting rid of termite swarms like the one you see in Kenny's video, you'll definitely want to call in the pros. These little buggers can do some serious damage, so it's not something you want to mess around with. Pest control professionals have a variety of tricks up their sleeves, including chemical treatments, fumigation, heat treatment, physical barriers, and integrated pest management.

Plus, they are a lot safer than a blow torch and a flammable canister of bug spray.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
