Did You Know…?
- Termites have perfected food cultivation and almost never run out of nutrients. Their nests contain gardens of fungi that the pests can eat, digest, and cultivate into more fungi that they can eat again.
- You might worry most about termites burrowing into the floorboards and wooden beams of your home. However, they don’t just infest your house; they can also nest in the trees around your yard, foraging into your home for food on occasion.
- Like ants, termites have various roles in their colonies, like soldiers and workers. Soldier termites have characteristically large heads, and termite tunnels are typically crafted to be only large enough to accommodate the soldiers’ enlarged heads.
- Though similar to termites, ants are actually natural foes to termites, and often try to invade nests and mounds when they come across them. The soldier termites protect their colonies by guarding the passageways, and the effort is usually successful given the limited space of the tunnels.
