Why Termite Awareness is Important
It’s important to keep an eye out for destructive termites. Here’s why:

Diverse Termite Species: Australia is home to over 300 species of termites. Out of these, around 30 can cause significant damage to wooden structures, crops, and trees. That’s 30 species of termites too many of damaging termites we need to be on the look out for.

Economic Impact: Termites cause an estimated damage of hundreds of millions of dollars annually in Australia. The cost of repairing termite damage can be hefty, and many insurance policies don't cover these costs. It is better to be observant and implement preventive measures against termites.

Damage to Structural Integrity: Termites feed on cellulose, primarily found in wood. Homes, especially those predominantly constructed with wood, are at risk. Undetected termite infestations can compromise the structural integrity of buildings. This puts its occupants in a hazardous situation.

An Ecological Role, Despite Their Pest Status: While termites can be destructive pests, they play a vital role in the ecosystem. By breaking down tough plant fibers, they return essential nutrients to the soil. An understanding of their ecological role can help in managing them without causing undue harm to the environment.
