There are two main types of destructive termites that are found in Canberra:

Subterranean termites and drywood termites. Subterranean termites live in the soil, and they build mud tubes to travel to food sources. 

Drywood termites live in wood, and they do not need to come into contact with the soil to get water.

Both types of termites can cause significant damage to homes and businesses. 

Subterranean termites can eat through concrete and brick, and they can even travel through water pipes. Drywood termites can eat through furniture, flooring, and other wooden objects.
