In hot countries there is such a nasty thing as a termite
. The picture of its activities is impressive. Indeed, we need to fight.
I would like, if it ispossible to see something that even remotely is resembling this picture. And, then I don’t believe somehow.
Well, you have a bug, well, it made an ugly hole.
I remember seeing such hole in my grandmother’s village and not just only one. Once they gnawed through and gone. It was quite tasteless. They found something tasty.
When the house will rot, they may come back.
Such holes are dangerous IMHO only for the frame house where a vapor barrier is used, and even a small hole is undesirable.
I have a stack of barked wood and poles (and these are unberked wood). Once, 20 years ago I slowly layed and now I use
some of them! They were gnawn by a bark beetle. Probably, it ate a pine. Cleared from the top and left.
