There will be a great relief to those who have been affected by termites in the western and northern divisions as the government has allocated $3 million to assist those families whose properties have been damaged.

Assistant Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Sakiusa Tubuna says there are around 150 termite-infested properties that have already been identified in Lautoka.

The Assistant Minister says the situation is so dire that some houses will need to be demolished because the termites have already compromised the integrity of the structures.

Tubuna says experts suggest that termites can devalue a property by around 25 per cent and reduce property life, making repairs more costly over the years

He says the time to act is now as they are a group that will make a difference.
