Termites are a type of insect. Termites are eusocial insects that are classified at the taxonomic rank of Isopteran, or as family Termitoidae within the cockroach. Termites were once classified in a separateorder from cockroaches, but recent phytogenetic studies indicate that they evolved from close ancestors of cockroaches during the Jurassic period.

However, the first termites possibly emerged during the Permian or even the Carboniferous period. About 3,106 species are currently described, with a few hundred more left to be described. Although these insects are often called “white ants?, they are not ants.

Termites are among the most successful groups of insects on Earth, colonising most landmasses except for Arctica and Antarctica Their colonies range in size from a few hundred individuals to enormous societies with several million individuals.

Termite queens have the longest lifespan of any insect in the world, with some queens reportedly living up to 30 to 50 years. Unlike ants, which undergo a complete metamorphosis, each individual termite goes through a metamorphosis that is incomplete, that proceeds through egg, nymphand adult stages. Colonies are described as Superorganism, because the termites form part of a self-regulating entity, the colony itself.

Like ants and some bees and wasps from the separate order Hymenoptera, termites divide labour among castes consisting of sterile male and female “workers? and “soldiers?. All colonies have fertile males called “kings? and one or more fertile females called “queens?. Termites mostly feed on dead cellulose material and dead plants, generally in the form of wood, dead leaves, soil, or animal dung. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in thetropical and sub-tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.

Termites usually are cryptic, meaning that they don’t come out into the open making them difficult to detect. They are often called the “silent destroyer? because they may be secretly hiding and thriving in your home or yard without any immediate signs of damage.

Even when they are visible within the home as flying insects, termites can often be mistaken for ants. Some homeowners will dismiss the termites as pesky ants (which often swarm at the same time of year) and ignore them without taking any preventive or extermination measures.

This allows established termite infestations to grow exponentially. Termites can be identified by their straight, beaded antennae, uniform waists, and wings of equal size.

  • Termites generally swarm in the spring. It is important to get an annual termite inspection to prevent costly damage.
  • Termites also swarm in the late summer.
  • One colony of Termites can contain an average of 3 million members. There have been documented cases where 70 million Termites have been found.
  • Termite colonies are often larger (and more damaging) in a home infestation than in nature
  • All termites are Social insects and raise their young as a group.
  • The total weight of all of the termites in the world is more than the weight of all the humans in the world.
  • Termite colonies eat non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
  • Termites have wings that they shed once they have found a good place to build a nest.
