Termite Removal - Finding the Queen

A Termite Queen 4.5cm long

This Termite Queen is about 4.5-5cm long

A natural way of getting rid of termites it to remove their queen - the termite colony will die. No need for any poisonous chemicals! By removing all the queens on a plot the area can be kept free of termites for a long time. At any sign of termites, the new queen needs to be removed again. New queens form when they fly out in the rainy season.

Finding the queen in a termite colony requires some determination and can involve a lot of digging. Start digging at an active termite mound, following the tunnels until you find the core, where the queen resides.
