With termites travelling up to 100m from their nest, what you might be seeing is a set of scouts looking for food, rather than the nest itself. That’s why it’s important not to react and respond with common household treatments. It’s more important to stop any future attacks from the termite colony.
You might be tempted to clean up and remove any food sources, timber, cardboard, wooden furniture, from the area. Strangely enough, you’re removing the termite’s food source and they will move to find more and that’s more than likely to be your house.

That is why I recommend you contact me at the first signs of termites or termite activity. Call me on 0407 614 220 or use the contact form.
