WHAT IS THE TERMITE?


The dry wood termite has straight antennae and 2 pairs of wings of equal length on it's body. The termite population is mostly made of workers and they are also responsible for caring of eggs, making tunnels, looking for food. Worker termites look like small white worms or maggots. There are soldiers that defend the colony and they have 2 large jaws used for slicing into predators. Then there is a reproductive class that creates offspring for the colony.



And finally there is a king and queen who are primarily responsible for having eggs. The King termites' responsiblity is to mate with as many queens as possible to expand the colony. The queen lays eggs until there are enough offspring to take care of the colony. She lives for up to 10 years. Termites are small and soft, but their hard jaws allow them to cut into the smallest and toughest pieces of wood and turn them into digestive energy for themselves and their colony.

Termites eat wood and other plant materials. They also do not need water as they take moisture from the wood they eat. Just like ants, termites are extremely social creatures. They like to live in warm regions of the world. They love wood! Termites do not need a source of water. They live off the water that is produced from the digestion of the cellulose. You can find their nests in damp soils or timbers but they do not require contact with the soil. They are social insects. Their colonies may contain up to 2,700 members. Colonies live within the wood. Like many insects, termites have an egg, an immature and an adult stage. During the two-week incubation period, eggs are tended by the worker termites. The nymph hatches directly from the egg. Attendants feed nymphs regurgitated food for the first two weeks, enabling them through molting to become workers, soldiers, reproductives, or supplementary reproductives.The nymphs pass through 7 phases before reaching adulthood.
