TERMITES TRAVEL 200 METRES FROM THEIR NEST TO FEED THE TERMITE COLONY

The amazing thing about termites is that they travel so far from their nest to feed their growing colony. When I talk of colonies the Queen Termite is just amazing she can produce 30,000 live termites a day!!

The soldier termites bring back the wood and regurgitate their food to feed their Queen and their young.

What is also amazing is that the termites are blind which makes it all the more extraordinary BUT their sense of smell is acute to find the timber that they need to survive.

ACTIVE termites in one colony can add up to the millions in a month and out of the the 30,000 live termites born a day only 2 of them will leave the colony to start their own NEW colony and the whole cycle will begin again.

WHERE DO THE NEW COLONIES GO?

The new colonies will sometimes target the house next door, across the road or sometimes they skip a few houses in search of their desired timber meal.

This is why it is IMPORTANT to have regular termite inspections once a year is a small price to pay against a repair bill up to $40,000 for a new roof (house in Chisholm 2 months ago).
