Termites

Previous
Next

Termites are pale in colour and thus commonly referred to as “white ants”.

Like bees and ants, they are social insects and live in colonies either in the ground or in wood.

Homes are particularly susceptible to termites as they prefer to build nests in wooden furniture – especially timber! The humid climate of Singapore provides the best environment for the termites to thrive.

Types found in Singapore

  • Dampwood Termites
  • Drywood Termites
  • Subterranean Termites
