Termite Treatment Sydney

 

Termites are the major structural timber destroying pest in Australia. According to reports they do more damage to homes than storms, fires and floods combined. The main problem is that subterranean termites may enter a structure from below ground and cause damage. Termites live in nests which is typically underground but can also be in trees, post, stumps, wood piles or even on the ground. They are a social insect, the typical nest contains several castes; the queen, the king, workers, soldiers and reproductives. The queen can lay thousands of eggs each year. Soldiers often have large heads and mandibles (jaws), their job is to protect the colony. Workers form the majority of the colony have many jobs such as taking care of the queen and the larvae (new hatchlings), foraging for and collecting food and feeding the other castes. It is the workers you find in the damaged timbers with the soldiers to protect them.
