termites

The termite order branches from an ancient wood cockroach-like insect about 100 million 

years ago. Termites as a majority are known to inhabit the tropical regions around the world. 

Few of the species are able to branch out into the northern territories. Termites today that 

spend their lives within the food source are the most primitive of termite species. The next 

more moderately adapted termites live in the soil and forage for wood. African termites are 

some of the most advanced termites in the world that farm funguses and grasses. These 

termites live in the soil all of their lives and construct mounds that are in the record books. 

There are also experimental trials being conducted using termites to create biofuels. The 

termites are truly novel insects that are ranked amongst the most successful insect pests.

Termite Habitat 

The termite species span over the whole world. Most of their habitats lie in the tropics, 

subtropics, and warmer climate regions. Most of the Termites thrive in warm moist lowlands 

and along coasts. They are nearly 1000+ termite species across the world, most of which are 

originating from Africa. 

Lifecycle 

Termite’s life cycle mainly consists of three different cast types of termite or caste types known 

as reproductive, workers, and soldiers. The life cycle contains an egg, young termite larvae or 

termite nymph, older nymph, worker, soldier, drone, and queen. Once a termite lays eggs 

countless thousands of others hatches, it is then called termite larva. The larva can become 

one of the three castes: workers, soldiers, or a secondary or supplementary reproductive 

termites. This happens based on social, environmental, and termite pheromone cues. The larva 

then molts until it reaches maturity, which usually takes three molts. The larva can become a 

worker or soldier and its life cycle is over until it dies. The larva also could become a 

reproductive alate or secondary reproductive, where it goes on to reproduce and become a 

king or queen termite for another colony. The queen has the longest life, spanning on average 

from 25 years. The other types of termite’s life span vary from 12 to 24 months. 

The stages of development are: Egg -> Nymph -> Adult (which can be secondary reproductive, 

worker, or soldier) 

Diseases 

Termite’s bite and stings are not toxic but they do carry some type of allergies and 

asthma attacks to people. Although preventing termites may not be seen as an 

essential step in protecting personal health, doing so can lower the risk of unwanted 

health problems. Though the termites don’t spread critical diseases, they do damage 

to our house structures a lot
