With colonies that range in size from a few hundred individuals to enormous societies with over a million, termites are perhaps one of the most successful groups of insects on Earth. They’ve colonized most landmasses except Antarctica and their queens can live up to 50 years which is the longest known lifespan of any insect.
The issue with termites is that they are detritivores or detritus feeders. This means that they feed on dead plants and trees and most buildings are made of wood or have components that just attract termites to get nutrients from cellulose, an organic fibre found in wood and plant matter.
Wood makes up the majority of the pests’ diet. There are termites, however, that will also eat other materials such as paper. The best way to keep them away is to leave a gap between your building and the soil or trees. Some termites prefer dry wood, while others prefer moist wood. Either way, the best cure is to not let them into your residence in the first place!

Pests will always leave tell-tale signs of their presence. Possums, rats, and mice leave droppings. For termites, this would be seeing winged termites called swarmers, indoors. This would indicate an infestation warranting treatment. Termites are also attracted to light. People often confuse winged termites with ants, which tend to swarm at the same time of year. Termites have straight antennae, a uniformly thickened waist, and wings of equal size. Conversely, ants have elbowed antennae, constricted waists, and forewings that are longer than the hind wings.
Treating your property could require hundreds of liters of termiticide. This is a liquid pesticide that’s injected into the ground along the foundation, beneath concrete slabs, and within foundation walls. DIY products, sold to homeowners at retail stores or bought over the internet, will seldom eradicate an existing termite problem.
Though termites are not harmful to humans, colonies of these notorious insects can cause billions of dollars of damage each year. They are also difficult to detect before they create structural damage to a property, causing huge financial and property loss. If you notice any signs of termites, call the professionals.
With other jobs we would even provide you with tips on how to DIY this task, with this one, it’s a straight-up no.
