Termites are the cause of the greatest economic losses of timber in service in Australia
ValleyPest’s effective termite management consists of inspections, treatments and systems installations.
The main pest species in Australia, Cryptotermes spp., are subterranean; and once they have gained access to timber, they mostly excavate it internally. To maintain a high level of humidity and temperature, termites leave a thin layer of wood around their activity, so that their presence is not obvious. Often the ﬁrst indication of an infestation is the collapse of flooring or of structural bearers and joists.
Subterranean termite species make tunnels through the soil. These originate from the colony and are the main means of searching for food. Timber in or on the ground is attacked from these underground tunnels.
In the case of the pest species Coptotermes acinaciformis, the subterranean tunnels, which are mostly in the top 20 cm of soil, radiate up to 50 m, and in some soils, they may be deeper and radiate further. Some other subterranean species have similar ranges of activity. The tunnels are used by the workers travelling from the food source to the main colony, although soldiers occur along their length for defence.
