Termite activity caught in the nick of time! – Tullarmarine

Termite concealed behind a box

I discovered Live Schedorhinotermes spp located concealed behind a cardboard box within a Subfloor storage area. The only sign of termite activity was a single mud lead located in the corner of the storage area. On further inspection, the cardboard box was removed and a termite gallery was located! The box was actually glued to the wall with mud and absolutely choc-a-block full of live termites. Luckily the termites were discovered before they were able to gain access into the residence and damage any timbers. Another week or two and they might not have been so lucky! Regular termite inspections are essential!
