White Ants or Termites?
When the northern hemisphere settlers came to Australia from England, Ireland and Europe they did not know what termites were. They found insects were destroying the timbers in their houses and as they looked like ants but were lighter in colour, they called them White Ants and they are frequently still referred to in this way today. In other parts of the world they are known as Termites and the influence of international companies and products has now established the Termite name in this country.
Like ants, Termites divide labour among castes, produce overlapping generations and they take care of their young collectively. Only about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species of Termites are economically significant as pests which cause serious structural damage to buildings. Most Termite species feed on dead plant material, wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung.
A typical colony contains semi-mature young, workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes, sometimes containing several egg-laying queens.
