Details

Termite Colony(Reticulitermes grassei)


Species

This colony can already contain 1 or more queens or kings. When the king or queen dies, new queens or kings follow this up automatically. We call these royal termites primary; they are usually recognizable by a slightly different pigment, they are often somewhat larger and sometimes have wings. In addition to primary reproduction, there is also secondary reproduction. Termites from secondary reproduction originate from nymphs and are called neotenes. They are usually not present as long as royal termites are still present. If the royal termites are lost, a neoteen reaches sexual maturity without reaching a mature state with wings or leaving the nest.

There can be both workers and soldiers in these colonies. The number of workers varies from 30 to 150. So there may even be winged specimens in the colony, who can take over the role of queen or king if necessary (and otherwise die on their own).

 

Suitable for

Termites are fed with cellulose. One of the basic ingredients of wood. We call the nest where you keep termites a termitarium. You can make a termitarium of different materials, such as acrylic. You can find a suitable model on our website.

Termites cannot climb the acrylic and these species (grassei) are not affected by vision, they are almost completely blind. That is why they are easy to keep and easy to observe!
