Fiji’s Biosecurity Authority calls for calm while urging members of the public to take action if they see termites swarming near their homes.
BAF chief executive Elvis Silverstrini explains that termite swarming was common during this time of the year as it was part of the termite life cycle when they developed wings and flew to other areas to start new colonies.
“We are advising residents not to be alarmed if they see termites swarming around their house, but to take precautionary measures to stop the termites entering their homes and forming new colonies there. Once termites enter the homes they are likely to shed their wings and form new colonies which will be very destructive for the home owners,’’ he said.
BAF requests members of the public to close all windows and doors from 6.30pm to 8pm and light small fires in a controlled area outside their homes. People have also been advised to switch off all lights outside their homes and use minimal lightings inside.
The most affected termite areas in Lautoka are Tomuka, Kashmir, Field 40, Naikabula, Saru and part of Waiyavi.
