Termite Behaviour and Social Structure
Termites are ground-inhabiting, social insects that live in colonies. A colony can number several million individuals. New colonies are formed when winged males and females from the parent colony emerge in flight and swarm.
Every termite colony consists of 4 castles each having a specific role within the colonies social structure.
The king and queen termite are central to any vibrant termite colony, with the queen acting as an egg-laying machine and known to live up to 25 years.
The caste provides all of the labour for the colony including searching for and collecting food, feeding all other castes and immatures, grooming others within the colony, cleaning, maintenance and building for the colony.
The soldiers caste protects the colony from invasion by other insects. Soldier termites are fed by the worker termites as they are unable to feed themselves.
Alates are winged reproductive’s that fly from the nest in their thousands eager to establish a new colony. Alates are poor flyers so they generally only fly some 50 – 100 metres from the parent nest. As such, when observing flying alates you can generally be assured a termite (White Ant) nest is nearby.
