No two Species of Termite are Exactly Alike
Different termite species have different nesting habits, and that means you’ll find them in different places around your building and the surrounding property. With a little bit of knowledge, you can minimize your risk of attracting an infestation. Every species requires different methods for detection and removal. The following are the three most common varieties in Australia:
This is the most destructive variety of termite found in Australia. They can do a lot of damage without leaving much evidence that they’re there. This is because this species nests in tubelike tunnels underground. They burrow up into wood for nourishment and can be found anywhere that moist soil is in direct contact with a wood source. Tree stumps in your yard can cause these termites to move into the foundation of your home.
Unfortunately, structural issues may be the first thing you notice with this species. Your house may seem as though it shakes more when you move through it. You may even notice soft spots in the floor or settling noises. Doors and windows will not seem to fit properly in their frames, and you may suddenly have issues getting some doors to latch or stay closed.
Drywood and Dampwood Termites
Drywood and dampwood termites are very similar in how they nest. Both nest in single sources of wood. That means they can penetrate into a beam and remain undetected for a very long time. They will continue to eat away at the same piece of wood until it crumbles and disintegrates completely, or until they’re stopped.
The main difference between dampwood and drywood termites is in the type of wood they prefer. As their names suggest, dampwood termites prefer moist woods. Drywood termites prefer dry or slightly damp wood in a humid environment.
As such, you’re more likely to find drywood termites nesting in your walls and attic. Dampwood termites might be found in basements and bathrooms where leaking pipes have moistened the beams.
