Great and Small Creatures
Wherever you are in Australia, you will definitely have seen this little creature in your garden or even in your house (or honey jar).
Ants live all over Australia in every single kind of environment. That is because there are so many types of ants - over 1,300 known species in Australia alone.
Incognito Insects Scurry about the Garden
You’ve seen ants scurry about your garden, but have you ever seen a really, really big one? Have you ever spotted a blue one? Or one that sticks its bum in the air when it walks?
As the weather warms up this spring and summer, so do the activities of many of our little troublemakers. It is the time when termites commence their social swarming.
Termites are not always white, wingless and blind. In order to create social swarms, the colony emerges from being underground after at least three years. Flying termites are at their reproductive stage and are short lived.
