Termite damage

This short video shows a door frame in a house at a recent inspection in Melbourne that has active termites inside. The termite species was Coptotermes Acinaciformis which is a fairly common termite species in Victoria. These termites are subterranean termites and where they entered this particular house they were completely concealed and undetected. This damage occurred within 4 -5 months and shows the importance of undertaking regular timber pest inspections.  Click here to view our You Tube video.
