Types of Termites in Malaysia

Subterranean Termites

The most obvious type of termites you will see in Malaysia is the Subterranean termites. They are the most destructive type as their colony can consist of more than 2 million termites.

Subterranean termites eat a lot by feeding off structures, furniture, and roofing. Since they need soil to survive, look for their trail on the exterior walls.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are found in dry wood, hence their name so they don’t need water to survive. Sometimes, you can spot them on wooden items so keep an eye out.

Once they spread into your house, they will continue to devour your furniture and build interconnected tunnels.

Dampwood termites

Dampwood termites, on the other hand, are found on moist plants and wood, usually outdoors. Luckily, they are the least dangerous type of termites. They don’t carry disease nor do they cause much damage.

But, to put your mind at ease, get rid of them if you see termite infestation in your home.

Why do termites eat wood?

The main source of food for termites is cellulose in the wood. While most eat on dry leaves, tree stumps, and paper, some termites feed on linen, wool, cotton fabrics, and leather.

Also, the danger of termites is that they are almost impossible to detect immediately. Apparently, they can live in wooden structures without revealing themselves for several years.

So, don’t be surprised if structures collapse even before you knew you had termites.

Can you get rid of termites yourself?

Even though you feel you can try doing termite control yourself, you should leave termite prevention and termite treatment to the professionals.

But, how do you get rid of termites yourself? Although not permanently, here are some tips you can try yourself.

Liquid Anti-termite Barrier

Kills existing infested termites but good for termite prevention too. The primary use of this liquid termite barrier is to surround your house with a termite pesticide barrier that will poison termites upon contact.

Benefits of liquid termite barrier:

  • Undetectable by termites, hence they will walk straight through it.
  • Has a multiplier effect, so can spread by contact.
  • Slow acting, giving ample time for the poison to spread to other termites.
  • Non-repellent so termites won’t detect it.

Anti-termite Poisoned Bait

This termite poison bait will attract foraging termites which will then spread to its colonies. Moreover, you can easily install this termite baiting and detecting system around the perimeter of your house.

Benefits of anti-termite poisoned bait:

  • Spreads poison with high chances to wipe out the termite colony
  • Less costly and time-consuming
  • Highly effective for Subterranean termites.

Direct Chemical Treatment

This termite treatment is best for crevices in your wall, attic, and rafters. Usually, it consists of foam that is highly effective for termites in hiding. The chemical then slowly evaporates where it spreads to the termites upon contact.

Benefits of Direct Chemical Treatment:

  • Cost and time effective
  • Excellent at killing both Subterranean and Drywood termites
  • Lasts for at least a month

Other termite control solutions

  • Boric acid
  • Beneficial Nematodes
  • Diatomaceous Earth
