Teak Monasteries in Mandalay, Myanmar
The termite infestation is a secondary problem that is a consequence of serious decay caused by a range of wood-destroying fungi. These fungi destroy the chemicals in the teak that make it resistant to termites. The termites cannot attack the unmodified teak and cannot, therefore, spread to all other timber in the building.
Termite population was linked to decay, which is entirely caused by trapped water.
