What sounds do Termites make

This first video clearly displays the “knocking” sound Termite soldiers make with their heads when they are alarmed. It’s like a drum beat to evacuate.

This second video below clearly illustrates what termites will do when they are disturbed. If an opening is made into their workings, the solider termites will quickly rush to defend the breach. They will bite your fingers and extrude a milky latex liquid. They also make a knocking noise with their heads to raise the alarm. If you leave them alone, they will plug the breach with a mud packing. They never like to be exposed.

If you have heard this knocking noise or suspect there are some affected timbers, call us now on 3088 2100 to arrange an inspection to get professional advice.
