Luckily, it is not often that you find more than one type of live termites in a house at the same time. Recently, when conducting an inspection at a house in Manly, Queensland, we found that it had four different types of termites chewing away at the wooden stumps and interior timbers. For the termite savvy readers, we found 1. Coptotermes, 2. Schedorhinotermes, 3. Heterotermes and 3. a native Dry-wood type known as Cryptotermes primus.
The only option in this kind of case is to immediatley eradicate all the activity. We recommended the transfer poison – Terimdor, as it would be affective on all these termites when applied initially as a foaming treatment and then as a preventative treatment in the soil.
