“…Heterotermes longiceps and Amitermes amifer were found infesting fences and eating decomposing wood in yards. Heterotemes longiceps has also been found in the urban environments of the cities of Brasília by Constantino & Dianese (2001), Corrientes by Torales (2002), Belo Horizonte by , João Pessoa by Vasconcellos et al (2002), and Goiânia by Costa et al (2009). Amitermes amifer, in turn, has also been found in João Pessoa causing superficial damage to wood objects in gardens (Vasconcelos et al 2002).…”

“…Decades ago, this species was mainly observed in natural or agricultural environments (Fontes and Milano 2002). However, the incidence of N. corniger in urban households has risen in recent years (Costa et al 2009;Albuquerque et al 2012;Mello et al 2014) what indicates its increasing importance as an urban pest. A major reduction in the natural vegetation in urban-transition areas could be the main cause for increases in N. corniger populations in Recife city, capital of Pernambuco State in Brazilian northeastern region (Milano and Fontes 2002b;Albuquerque et al 2012).…”
