Termites Information Guide Thing

Post by dermy on Sun Sep 21, 2014 3:55 pm

Thought I'd post a thread relating to Termites on here, I will be doing some research on them [mainly for fun and knowledge]
Here is a pic I found of the inside of a Termite Mound:

This picture is pretty intresting, as it shows an Alate, a normal worker and on the bottom right a "Secondary Reproductive" which can turn into [and will likely do so soon as you can see wing buds] into an alate.

Thanks guys, I think that was when I was trying to get more posts in various forums to help keep boards alive or at least show that they had some activity. That's great Formica123, if you need help ask, I know a few People who have had success keeping Termites, it isn't as easy as ants, and trust me get a ton of Queens and Kings from the Nuptial Flights, more then you'd think you need. Sadly their success rate is low.
