A1 Pest Control Canberra Discovers 9 Queen Termites!
Today we sent the team out to Kambah for a termite inspection on a tree that was cut down last year and the stump had been decorated with gnomes.
We found the colony and in the royal chamber there were 9 Queen Termites. This will mean after the chase out we will be doing a barrier around the house to protect the home from the termites.
While the inspection was taking place the woman next door is also wanting a termite inspection. A lot of our days lately are on termites and advising courses of action to take.
FACTS ABOUT TERMITES.
1) there is only 1 Queen termite who’s main purpose is to lay up to approx 30,000 eggs per day! The other 8 we found today are to ensure the colony lives on should something happen to the Queen.
2) a Queen & King will only fly once and that is to find a place to start a new colony and then will shed their wings and never fly again.
3) a Queen termite can live up to 50 years of age in her lifetime lay 165 million eggs. The worker termites only live around a year but are easily replaced by the Queen.
4) worker termites are there to feed the Queen and find food sources for themselves.
5) The only way to successfully kill a termite colony is by killing the queen. She never leaves her chambers you have to find a way of getting to her.
Killing all the workers is not enough as she can quickly replace them.
