Description: Commonly referred to as ‘white ants’. Worker termites are tiny soft-bodied creatures, and whitish or creamy in colour, therefore given the nickname ‘white ants’. Soldier termites have larger armoured heads, with protruding jaws that look like pinchers, which can be orange, brown, yellow or red in colour and are used to crush intruders. Swarmers are winged termites and usually swarm during daylight. Their wings are brownishgrey, and front wings are larger than hind wings.
Location: Termites are attracted by their primary food source: cellulose. They often infest buildings and damage lumber, wood panels, flooring, wallpaper, and paper products. They have the ability to cause serious structural damage and, in the worst cases, total collapse of the building.

Protect with: Efekto Karbadust.
Description: Black or brown with greyish ‘hair’ on upper bodies and wing cases, and shiny spots that resemble eyes. Only the larvae feed on the wood. Larvae take 2-3 years to mature, depending on the moisture content of the wood. Larvae usually mature in spring, and the mature adults then cut holes 6-10 mm in diameter to exit the wood. Adults are most active in summer.
Location: Found in any wooden structure or furniture. Fine sawdust coming out of small holes in the wood is typically the first sign of the presence of wood borer larvae. The dust has a gritty feel to it.
