We've just found out we have some unwelcome visitors.
They look like this.
Of course we can't see them, they are hiding behind the wall of our third bedroom !
Yes they're TERMITES !
That's a word that strikes fear into any Australian's heart.
(I wrote about them once before here.)
They eat wood - the wood that holds your roof on your house or that your walls are made of......
and they are chomping away inside the wall in our third bedroom !!!!
We found these on the floor of the bedroom yesterday........
LOTS of them !!!
They are off to try to establish a new colony, I think.
We have had the experts out and the exterminators will be here at 7:00am tomorrow so I'll know more about how bad the damage is and how they got in there then.

Wish us luck.,
