It’s very rare to see termites *tracking* or walking across the ground, especially without the mud tracks as termites tend to travel underground – this means you don’t *see* them until they have actually entered your home. Unfortunately termites can travel up to 50 meters from their nesting locations which mean they can attack your house while having a nest next door – in your neighbour’s property.
Termites travel in tunnels in the soil looking for water and food sources, you may find a small tunnel of mud on the wall of your house or on timber fence posts or on posts that support decks etc. Termites use these tunnels for protection when they leave the safety of their underground tunnels.
When termites are not in tunnels they are vulnerable to attack.
