Glyptotermes has been recorded as a pest of timber trees in Australia (Greaves, 1965) and east Africa (Harris, 1950, 1968). In addition, Glyptotermes dilitatus can be a serious pest of tea (and too a lesser extent rubber, Wood 1996) in Sri Lanka, the Indian subcontinent, and south east Asia (Sands, 1977; Wood, 1996), where it can hollow out whole bushes to ground level.
