Over the last 3 weeks Termite Solutions inspectors have observed that Microceretermes sp. termites have been very active
And today, for the first time this year, we observed Alates ( flying reproductives ) from a Microceretermes nest beside a home in Algester. Last year our first sighting was in October.
Microceretermes termites are rarely associated with structural damage, but they can really be a nuisance when they build their mud nests inside your home.
If you studied Latin when you were in school, you’ll remember that ‘ Micro’ means small and ‘Ceretermes’ means ‘ bloody nuisance ‘, so you’ll quickly work out that these termites are a real nuisance, not a very destructive pest.
We’ve attached some photos which show the typical evidence found from Microcerotermes.
