Heterotermes Ferox

This particular termite is found Australia wide but fortunately mainly dose small amounts of damage over a long period of time this is because they have such small nests restricting there numbers and not growing in size like the Coptotermes for example, they also do not range far from there small not populous colonies. hetero can cause significant damage when numerous nests or colonies build up in one small area, they are mainly hardwood eaters but will eat other softwood if necessary. By far the best and most Eco way to treat hetero is through termite traps and large hardwood feeding stations.
