Damp wood termites

Termite aren’t just termites, in fact there are over 350 different species in Australia alone and although the majority of them don’t cause us any issues there are some species that create huge amounts of damage throughout Melbourne. This photo, shows a species (Porotermes adamsoni or damp wood termites) that is not usually considered destructive however, if the conditions of your home replicate that of the termite environment then your home can become susceptible to a whole range of difference types of termites.

It pays to have a termite specialist carry out your termite examination as different termite species have different behaviours requiring different methods to deal with termites.
