New Orleans' Termite Swarm Was So Big it Ended Up On a Weather Radar

Termites are taking over, plauge-style

Proving that this city is 90 percent bugs during the summer time, the National Weather Service New Orleans radar this week showed a giant swarm of termites.

Termite swarming season typically runs through June.
