There are various different species of termites in South Africa but only a handful cause problems to properties:
Coptotermes spp (Subterranean Termites)
This is one of the most destructive termite species in South Africa. It attacks all timber structures in buildings and damages trees.
Cryptotermes spp. (native) (Drywood Termites)
If a piece of lumber is infested with dry wood termites, the whole colony is sealed inside that wood. Galleries are eaten from the inside out until all that is left is the outside shell of the wood, making a dry wood termite infestation very hard to detect.
Activity is usually detected when is too late and usually requires a piece of the wooden structure to be replaced as well as a large part to be treated.
Neotermes spp (Dampwood Termites)
Neotermes are a lot like leaf-cutting ants in their behaviour.
They are more of a headache for people with lawns.
However, it has been known that they can target thatch roofs, which can also lead to costly damage.
These termites are darker (yellow to dark brown) and run around above the surface freely, much the same as ants.
