      Termites are social insects of economic importance that have a worldwide distribution. Identifying termite species has traditionally relied on morphometric characters. Recently, several mitochondrial genes have been used as genetic markers to determine the correlation between different species. Heavy metal accumulation causes serious health problems in humans and Author: Reem Alajmi, Rewaida Abdel-Gaber, Noura AlOtaibi. Some termite species are bait shy and may take weeks or months to return to a disturbed bait. Some termite species don't share very well, so with them the toxin takes much longer to reach all parts of the colony. If you are using a commercial bait system, the supplied information should be able to tell you roughly how long things should take.

This contribution deals with the worker caste of the Neotropical termite fauna. It is a compilation of present knowledge about the morphology of pseudergates and workers, including the literature discussing the origin and evolution of this caste, the terminology used in the different taxonomic groups, and the techniques used to study these individuals, especially examination of the gut Cited by: 1.

In all termite families except the Termitidae, flagellate protists in the gut assist in cellulose digestion. [citation needed] However, in the Termitidae, which account for approximately 60% of all termite species, the flagellates have been lost and this digestive role is taken up, in part, by a consortium of prokaryotic : Insecta.

INTRODUCTION. Species of Cryptotermes are among the most destructive of termites attacking seasoned timber in buildings (Williams,).The association between Cryptotermes brevis and structural timber has become particularly close; this species has not yet been found in natural habitats.

Most of the pest species have been accidentally introduced, by Cited by: Ants kill a lot of termites. Right around the world, and for most termite species, ants are the main predators. When you see termite soldiers, most of the funny-shaped jaws or pointy or blocky heads are really there as effective adaptations against attacking ants.

When termites fly, lots get eaten before they can create a safe nest. Species which construct a well defined nest, such as representatives of the genus Coptotermes have colonies normally headed by one pair of primary reproductives. Queens are very physogastric and have oviposition rates of many tens of thousands of eggs per year (Nutting, ).
