Building & Pest Inspection Moorooduc | Porotermes

This building & pest inspection in Moorooduc on the Morningon Peninsula uncovered Porotermes in the garden.


Porotermes are a species of termites which we regularly find during a building & pest inspection. These termites are a dampwood species and are not usually considered a significant pest to dry timber used to build houses. Porotermes can however, infest an area of a building that is exposed to constant moisture, such as a leaking shower or timber frame members that are in constant contact with damp subsoil. These are just two examples of many.

We found these termites in a garden sleeper next to the building, which was in fact low to the ground so the risk of infestation was heightened. It’s important to inspect areas around the property grounds as well as the building to give our clients a complete understanding on the risk of termite attack at the property.
