Mr Inspector has been amazed by the activities and behavior of termites after carrying out numerous pest & building inspections around Melbourne since early 2004.
Above is a photograph of 2 termites called Alates which we found in a half keg during a building inspection in Black Rock.
At certain times of the year, normally in summer when it’s warm and muggy, winged termites leave the nest to start a whole new colony. In simplistic terms, when two Alates land together in a conducive environment (moist and timber) they will then develop into a King and Queen and start making baby termites that will eat your home and bring back food to the King and Queen.
