Termites in Australia
Termites in Australia are also commonly reffered to as 'white ants'. They are an insect that uses mud and wood to create nests and tunnels. Termites thrive in humid and warm environments, allowing them to stay hydrated. Left in a dry environment, termites will not survive. They also avoid sunlight by patching gaps in their tunnels with mud.
Termites can build iconic mounds of mud as their nests, or live in trees and buildings. They use the wood from trees and buildings as food.
Termites have an increidble social structure that provides different types of termites with specific roles to fill. There are queen, king, worker, reproductive and warrior termites.
Warrior termites can be distinguished by their large head and mandibles, and reproductive termites have large wings and fly in swarms. Often you can find their shed wings on the ground.
How To Spot Termite Damage
Costal areas in Australia are at high risk of termite infestation due to the humid environment. Termites can destroy the internal frames of wooden buildings, creating a dangerous living environment and causing costly damage.
Often, termites will be hard to spot as they keep their tunnels hidden inside the wood, and leave the outised intact, patching up any holes with mud.
Visible signs of termites can include patches of mud in wood, wooden frames such as doorframes that break upon light contact and crumble, and tiny, pale brown fecal pellets on the ground near wood.
