The Asian Subterranean Termites (Coptotermus gestro) are invasive alien species to Fiji. Parts of Lautoka and Labasa have been declared as Biosecurity Emergency Areas for Asian Subterranean Termites. The Coptotermes gestroi is endemic to Southeast Asia. Over the last century, human activity has spread this termite species far beyond its native range. Coptotermes gestroi is a very damaging termite and a threat to wooden structures wherever it occurs.
