Coptotermes sp. are the most destructive types in Singapore because they infest buildings and structures. They nest beneath the soil and dependent on soil for moisture.

Termite (Drywood)

Drywood termites are termites living in moisture less wood with no connection to the soil. They form nests in the structure or wood that they are infested, such as door frame and furniture. Living inside wood that has no contact with water, drywood termites have ability to metabolize water from the wood that they eat, absorbing and reabsorbing water from their faeces. Drywood termite colonies are very small compared to subterranean termite colonies.

Sign of infestation

  • Dropping of small size faecal pellet (1mm)
  • Damage on wooden structure

What if not treated on time?

  • Severe damage to furniture / household items

Type of treatment

Preventive measure

  • Remove unessential cellulose-based materials (e.g., lumbers, firewood, dead trees, tree stumps, etc.)
  • Install screens in attics and foundations to prevent alates from entering into the premises
  • Protect wood surfaces by sealing off cracks and crevices
