What are termites? Termites are a group of eusocial insects, a term used for the highest level of social organization in a hierarchical classification. Similar in hierarchy to ants, bees and wasps, termites divide labour among gender lines, produce overlapping generations and take care of young collectively. Termites are sometimes called “white ants”, or “ants with wings”, though they are not closely related to true ants.
Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung. Termites are economically significant as pests because they can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests. In nature, their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
Out in the forest and fields where their recycling techniques are extraordinary, termites are just doing their job. However, their efficiency is frowned upon when the wood they are recycling is in YOUR house in Smithtown.
