Schedorhinotermes - Try saying that with a mouthful of hot chips!
These termites, "schedorhinotermes," (pictured) were found destroying a treated timber retaining wall at a property in Brisbane. Schedorhinotermes are the 2nd most destructive termites in South East Queensland.
They tend to nest in tree stumps and in the root crown area of living, dead and debilitated trees as well as in timber buried in the ground, under properties, under filled-in verandahs, and in the ground immediately under fireplaces.
They are multi-site nesters whose nests may be difficult to locate as they are subterranean. It is very difficult to evaluate their damage to buildings without a very thorough survey of their activity. Termi-nett has the thermal imaging cameras to conduct non-invasive inspections of your property!
