Two major types of Termites on The Gold Coast
There are multiple species of termites, however, the Gold Coast contains two common species: the Subterranean Termite, and Drywood Termite (source: City of Gold Coast).
- Subterranean termite
Subterranean termites, also known as ‘white ants’ are highly destructive in nature. They create a nested structure with a nursery and foraging gallery system that must be a connection to the soil as a source of moisture. Galleries within timber have walls plastered with faeces whilst external galleries consist of mud or carton materials. Most termite species are subterranean inhabit.
- Drywood termite
Drywood termites live in galleries within timber or within very short bridging galleries between adjacent pieces of timber. They require no connection to the soil and maintain clear gallery walls. Faeces accumulate from free running pellets or frass (excrement of insect larvae) with the consistency of coarse pepper.
