Termites or 'White Ants' as they are often called, are endemic to Australia with over 360 classified species. 
They have a highly developed social organisation, they live in colonies, numbering from a few hundred to millions. In each colony there are several distinct castes, each of which has particular structure and functions related to the survival and maintenance of the colony. Although in many ways their behavior appears to resemble that of the ants, termites are not in fact ants but rather are more closely related to the cockroach.

Termite damage to electrical wiringTermites’ diet consists mostly of cellulose, which is obtained from a variety of sources such as living trees, seasoned timber, books and grasses. Termites are also known to chew through non-organic materials.


Termite Species
There are three distinct species of termites that are of concern in the Gold Coast and Tweed regions:

Subterranean Termites
These termites build their nest in trees, in tree stumps, under houses and within enclosed patios or other areas where timber has been buried or stored in contact with the soil. Subterranean termites’ habitats are limited by their need to obtain moisture from a water source. Subterranean termites can gain entry in houses and buildings in a variety of ways:Schedorhinotermes

By constructing mud tubes over concrete stumps
By tunneling up the centre pipe of wooden stumps
Constructing mud tubes from the soil to the flooring within cavity walls
Through hairline cracks which appear in concrete slabs around plumbing and electrical conduits.
Five of the twenty Termite castes that are of some level of economic importance in their region can be found in the subtropical climate of the Gold Coast, these are:Microcerrotermes

Coptotermes
Schedorhinotermes
Nasutitermes
Microcerrotermes
Hetrotermes
Dampwood TermitesHeterotermes
These termites will attack timber in contact with the ground, such as poles, fencing, weatherboard and trees. These termites are more commonly found in older houses where wood is in contact with the ground and there is poor ventilation or leaks from plumbing.

Drywood Termites
These termites are capable of attacking sound, seasoned wood that is not in contact with the ground. They obtain their moisture from the atmosphere and as a result can attack small articles of furniture and structural timber in houses.

Termite Activity
