Brimblecombe, A.R. (1958) Technical notes. Damage by ants to plastic sheathed cables. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 15 (3). pp. 157-160.



Following the manufacture of plastic covered cables the Postmaster-General's Department of the Commonwealth Government installed considerable numbers of small polythene sheathed underground telephone cables. During the autumn of 1956 failures in some of these cables, as a result of perforations in the sheath allowing the entry of moisture, were reported from Brisbane and Toowoomba.
