Termite Attack



















On one day they fly!

We were sitting upstairs watching a movie and suddenly the TV and all lights were covered by termites.

I opened the door and ran down to the living room to switch on the lights there. Q switched off the lights upstairs and within seconds all termites found their new source of light.

Can you imagine the noise?

PS: We later left the house since the termites ate one book shelve, some parts of the staircase, a number of door frames and parts of the beautiful bamboo flooring.

You can catch these by turning off all lights and putting a live flashlight on a basin of water.

The flashlight will attract the termites and they'll all fly into the basin's water.

actually we tried getting them into our pool but fortunately the termites flew to the stronger light sources which came from our neighbor...
