Termites

SPECIES OVERVIEW

Termites are the definition of strength in numbers. They are small social insects that live in colonies comprising of their own complex hierarchies. Their colonies can vary in size, including just two termites -- a king and queen -- to a few hundred individuals. However, mature termite colonies can potentially grow even bigger! 

In addition to a king and queen, colonies are comprised of several other castes of termites, including reproductive, workers and soldiers. When a reproductive termite is ready to reproduce, it gains wings and flies off to mate and start a new colony.
