Termite Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Termite Dream Symbol – Dreaming of termites can represent change, sabotage, secrets, and destruction. They can carry out their destructive operations in relative secret. Operating in the background so the surface remains the same. They erode away the inner core until it all suddenly crashes when any pressure is applied.

termite-dreamsThis is a sign there are those around you that attack your core beliefs, faith, and integrity. Beware. For, if this continues, your character will erode away until you are only an empty shell. It is time to get rid of those who attack who you truly are.

Seeing termites can mean your luck will change for the better soon. This may only be temporary and herald a big fall coming soon after a windfall. It is a reminder the universe provides and then takes it away. Consider whether your sudden financial increase is enough to cover the crash.

Termites can also represent a relationship or friendship you have tried to end for some time. Now is the time to end it once and for all. It no longer serves a positive purpose in your life.

    What if you dream of seeing winged termites and you are trying to sweep them away from your church and later on you see them again in your dream coming out of a hole they created in your room,you sweeped them together in a container and you keep.
    What does that mean?

  7. This is not a dream, but this is in real life. I don’t have termites in my home, but one day I went to the bathroom and saw a broken termite wing fall to the ground, and I don’t see any signs of its body, just a broken wing. I then disposed of the wing. What does this sight mean?

    • Winged termites shed their wings before they go into the ground. Until they lose their wings they aren’t dangerous. Just because you didn’t see a body doesn’t mean it don’t exist. I hope you don’t have termites. You may want to get it checked out if you own your home. They can cause great destruction. I live in a termite invested neighborhood and almost every house has or has had termites including mine.

      I’ve been having termite dreams in the past year and I had another one this morning. But, I don’t take much stock in dream interpretations since a dream can mean one thing to one person and totally something different to another person. That’s why it is so important to keep dream diaries.

  8. I dreamed of eating Ice Cream then looking into the container and finding a tube shaped termite ball busted open with dead termited laying on their back and a black void under them.
    I do not generally do this or really believe in this, but the bible tells of dream interpretation.

    • Sasha Brauen on

      I dreamt about termites last night. I was sitting on my living room floor when all of the sudden there was an earthworm beside me and I look and it’s crawling out of a little hole- I start looking around my wood floors and there are little holes everywhere… I called a handy friend to come over and see if he could help- he said he could but was appalled by the amount. I don’t know what termites look like but in my dream these strong shelled bugs came marching out of the holes and I was frantically crushing them.

      Reading the above interpretation, it makes me think about a friend I had spent time with that evening. We met at a local market and she was very intoxicated- this has been a reoccurring thing for her and it’s to the point that it’s just not much fun being around her. She’s been a friend of mine for a long time- so I’m wondering if that’s part of it. I’ve also been having some struggles with my partner and not feeling incredibly connected/desired – this dream may be a warning to start talking about this before shit falls apart

  14. I also had a dream about this. I dreamed that my cousin stayed over at my house and we were in my room and I looked up to the wall and by the window. The termite had already eaten part of the wall on the top, next to the window. And I was trying to pack my clothes and I didn’t want the termites getting on my clothes in the closet. It was really scary! I worked in a nursing home where the termites came out only when a patient was dying. I’m weirded out by that!

  15. I had a dream about termites infesting my room. But when I first noticed it ,came from a Corkboard that I have full of pictures of me and friends. From there they started coming from everywhere. In my dream I tried killing them but couldn’t, my sister tried helping but it was useless. The termites were getting mad and became a giant snake shape (but full of termites) . I yelled for my mom she came and her and my sister tried killing them . Long story short right before I woke up ,in my dream both mom and sister were inside my room and I was closing the door on them and woke up.

    I’m a bit weirded out by this dream never have had it before.
    What does it mean
