    Drywood termites
    Drywood termites like to build their nests and live within wooden structures, which is how they get their name.

    Subterranean termites
    As opposed to drywood termites, subterranean termites like to live in the ground. This is because these species of termite need a source of moisture to survive.

    • In common cases in termite baiting treatment, termite re-infestation mostly caused by the presence of new termite colonies that appear after the bait is removed and/or after termites in the old colony has been eliminated.
    • For spraying or injection treatment the termite re-infestation is generally caused by something that damages the termiticidal barrier in the soil, such as there are a new wiring or pipes installation in the ground and/or natural factors such as land shifts which cause cracks that become new termite colony access.

  • Can you get termites from a neighbor?

    It's possible! If your neighbour is indeed being infested by termites, these termites colony may move to your house as well. This is because termites have to find the nearest food source from their nest.

    If your neighbor is doing a house renovation, make sure there is no wood material placed in the outside area for a long time because this could be an attractant for termites to come.
