Hear Live Coptotermes Clicking Through This Timber!

In this video here, Chris again shows us some termite damage. This time we can hear live Coptotermes (the sound is their mandibles clicking together). Luckily for this homeowner, the damage is isolated to the architrave along the top and a bit down the side.

The termites have entered this house through the sub floor via a termite mud lead underneath and straight up the architrave. When we tap the timber you can hear the hollowness thanks these hungry termites.
