This is the most common termite we encounter here in Brisbane at Silks Pest Control.

Never attempt to do a DIY termite treatment with any termites attacking your home especially this species.

If you mess up a termite treatment with Schedo’s – they will spread through out your home like wild fire, resulting in a massive amount of timber damage.
