Subterranean termites are a highly destructive timber pest, causing major structural timber damage to domestic and commercial buildings in Western Australia.

Recent industry surveys suggest that about one third of all unprotected properties are subject to attack by termites. Severe termite damage to Australian homes is on the increase due to recent changes in the type of chemicals allowed to be used, building construction materials and designs that encourage hidden termite entry and infestation.
