Title: Termite sensor and termite intrusion detecting system

Abstract: A termite sensor and intrusion detection system for detecting the intrusion of termites into wooden buildings. Conductive particles fill a container which termites can eat. A pair of electrodes are disposed opposite each other inside the container. A pair of terminals are connected to the electrodes and extend outside the container.
