Termites on the Gold Coast   what are they really like? Nasty things you might say, heaps of destruction they cause to homes, but let’s take a quick look at some interesting termite facts.

Termites are beneficial insects  ecologically speaking, yes, they do some good for the environment, hard to believe huh but they are a lot like worms all the moving through soil actually helps aerate and improve the soil.

Termites have been in the wood eating game for a long time, traces of them have been found to be over 130 million years old.

Termites are blind, but considering they live and work in the dark you would suppose they have no need for 20/20 Vision, the only termites that can see? Are the ones that have the job of making more termites. So how do they find their way around and not bump into each other? Termites leave a scent that others can follow, and it’s not the same scent, it’s a different flavor for turn right, left or go straight ahead.

Termites are actually very clean, believe it or not termites spend a great deal of time grooming each other. Their good hygiene (Although they eat each other’s poop) is important to their survival, as it keeps parasites and harmful bacteria under control within the colony.

So, we have shared some interesting things about termites, has that changed your mind on getting rid of them?

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?

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.
