Termites are responsible for millions of Dollars of damage across the World annually and are considered the most devastating pests challenging the human race. Though termites do not directly cause sickness and disease to humans, they compensate their presence among us by causing high economical and immense psychological damage.

They destroy our homes and other buildings undetected from under and within. If they not challenged it is possible that they could bring down any structure, in due time.


Termites drain millions of Dollars on Insurance premiums and payouts, in the modern world annually and could be No: 1 on the list of insects that give us economic woes. Believed to have evolved from the Jurassic Period, they have been great survivors in the ecological cycle.

They have destroyed old civilizations, where the people of that era built their homes with “wattle and daub”. With no strong deterrents to counter them, termites always had their way. People of that era considered an attack from termites as a curse brought down on them and left their abodes to move elsewhere.


In Australia, we tend to identify termites as white ants, which is a complete misconception. They are nowhere near in comparison. Termites are not white ants, though this term is used popularly, among the community.

In their reproductive process termite males join the termite Queens in a long mating cycle, which is not the case with white ants. The white ant males die just after mating and the white ant Queens carry male gametes, in them during their life time using them to produce eggs regularly.

Termites are subterranean insects but do sometimes extend their colonies above ground and when they do so, could be vulnerable to predators. They are not nocturnal hence when above ground are exposed and could be destroyed, which makes them naturally and defensively subterranean


Termites love damp soil, wood, and other wet similar areas. They build their colonies with intricate designs for easy access in and out. They prefer wet and damp areas and summer they are prolific in their activities and propagate profusely down below our abodes.


They are unsocial and maintain a distinct caste and hierarchical system dividing their multitude of chores between them. Each one of them carries out tasks allocated to them with military precision. It is these common traits among some insects that make some of us confuse termites with white ants.

Termite Queens are at the top of this hierarchy with mating males, workers, soldiers and semi matured young called nymphs making up the colonies. Colonies could last for hundreds of years if left undisturbed.


Colonies consists of many egg laying Queens with their numbers running into thousands and can even exceed millions. Egg laying Queens have a distended abdomen and when mature could disburse between 20,000-30,000 eggs in a day. Some species have immense ability to produce higher amounts of eggs.

With most species having two ovaries that consists of about 2000 ovaries their capacity to reproduce is just unimaginable. A termite Queen can live around 45 years, so we are faced with a very formidable foe that lives too close for comfort.


Termites are considered devastating economically to humans, because of their great ability to reproduce millions, over a long period of time. We have still not been able to effectively contain the spread of this very versatile enemy living in our midst.
