    That's why they want to come back. I'm having visions now of bugs all over the place and my house being eaten while we sleep haha.

    Buying it seemed like a good idea, but now not so much. It is strong and in a good area as far as flooding and cyclones go, but it's so much money all the time.

    Termites do not look like ants.They have wings.
    And Queensland is full of them.

    I would just look at them. They look different, and that's how I'd tell the difference.

    I'm not going to get close enough to them to find out or you could just bash them with the baseball bat left in the backyard.

    I noticed their nest. Having spent 31 years in this region, I have picked up on a few things.

    Re: What do you do if you suspect termites?

    I suspected termites and got a free test from Amalgamated Pest Control. They came out with a moisture sensor, which apparently is the sure-fire way to test for them. I called them because I heard scuttling sounds in the walls but I'm pretty sure now it must have been cockroaches. Anyway it cost me nothing so you should try them.
