Australian Termites Guide
It is said that there are only 2 different types of houses in Australia. The ones that already have termites and those that will eventually get them. Though this might sound like a very exaggerated statement, the fact is that termite infestations are now becoming very common across the country and even newer buildings that do not have too many wooden features in them are being attacked by termites.
Termites and termite swarms have always been a part of the Australian environment for literally millions of years. These creatures are also called white ants and are extremely persistent and resilient in nature. Every third property in Australia suffers from termite infestation. Annually, these termites Australia damage in excess of 180,000 Australian buildings or homes. Estimates of combined costs of the damage caused by termites ranges from 700 to over 1B with agriculture & horticulture also taken into consideration.
