Have you ever wondered why your Pest Controller says he can’t find a termite nest? Especially when many of us have seen the brown termite nests next to a farmers’ fence. The answer is simple…not all termites have the same type of nest.
As can be seen from the photos a termite nest can be hidden in the root crown of a tree. There was no visible signs that a termite nest was being established in this tree. During recent storms the tree split and the nest became visible. When the property had it’s annual inspection, approximately 4 weeks after the tree was split, the termite nest was still active, the nest was subsequently treated successfully.
