Almost all termites found in New Zealand are the new Zealand Drywood Termite (Kalotermes brouni).
They are generally found in dead trees, rotting logs but can be found infesting structural timbers with a high moisture content. This generally occurs in houses that poor ventilation or dampness problems.
Significant damage can occur, but this is rare.
There have been a number of cases of subterranean termites in New Zealand which have entered the country in hardwood timbers such as power poles from Australia.
