Termites are social insects, and they live together in densely populated colonies. Termites cause $5 billion in property damage each year! Contact WorldWide Pest Elimination now before its to late.
The termites are a group of eusocial insects until recently classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below) but now accepted as the Epifamily Termitoidae of the cockroach Order Blattaria, . Along with ants and some bees and wasps which are all placed in the separate order Hymenoptera, termites divide labour among castes, produce overlapping generations and take care of young collectively.
Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species (about 2,600 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests.
Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the subtropical and tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance. Their role in bioturbation on the Khorat Plateau is under investigation.
