You might have heard of an explorer by the name of Christopher Columbus. He was an Italian explorer, navigator, and coloniser. He traveled the world sailing in his wooden ship. He went on different expeditions to colonize different countries in the world. His main claim to fame was discovering a little place on the right-hand side of the globe called the USA, so for Nike, Apple and Hot Dogs we should give this "Chris Columbus" a bit of credit.

And now you are wondering what does Mr. Columbus have to do with our topic today which happens to be termites. Well, you may not know it but it is believed that two of Columbus' ship sank during his final expedition because of  termites ?

Termites used to be considered the most destructive insects in the planet. They are only a little bigger than an ant but can slowly and silently eat even the timber of largest house on the Gold Coast. The scary part is because they eat it from the inside out, you may not even know you have them until it’s too late, just remember Chris Columbus.

Termites for sale. Maybe you are a bit puzzled with my introductory phrase this time. Like who on the Gold Coast, in the right state of mind, would ever buy termites? I mean, they are known for destroying and bringing down houses. Then why would we buy something that will cause us to be homeless?
