Common species responsible for damage in NSWThe most common species responsible for damage in NSW are the Coptotermes, Nasutitermes and Schedorhinotermes species, with the most destructive being the Coptotermes. Within each nest, termites can range in numbers. The queen, which can survive for over 20 years, is a termite-producing machine and keeps the nursery full of new termites. Within the nest, it is the job of the soldiers to protect the queen and the workers. The worker’s job is to collect the food to allow the colony to survive and grow. The soldier termites are distinguished from the workers by their brown heads and all-over cream colour.
Hot, humid weather causes termites to swarmWhen the humidity is high, termites can be found swarming. These winged reproductive termites, or alates, are the future kings and queens of new nests. After swarming, these termites drop their wings and look for a nesting site. Alates are coal black to pale yellow-brown, flattened and about 1/4 to 3/8 inches long with pale or smoke grey to brown wings. A very small percentage of swarming termites survive to initiate new colonies. Many are eaten by other insects or birds. Likewise, swarms emerging inside a structure usually never survive. However, it is an indication of an infestation nearby and a termite controller should be contacted. Termites (white ants) cause more damage to houses then fire or floods. With the unusual weather creating the optimum breeding conditions for termites, having your home inspected by a professional termite inspector is of the utmost importance. Termites are destructive by nature, but only a few species attack homes. It is essential that a correct identification of the species is made.
