Termite Awareness Week: Termite TriviaMarch 14, 2019
Not all termites live underground like the ones we commonly see in the St. Louis area. Some termites, like the conehead termites commonly found in Florida, move around the ground just like ants.
No matter what kind of diet plan you follow — low fat, Keto, gluten-free, vegetarian, etc. — it’s a good idea to avoid the diet of a termite. They eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. So, quite literally, they spend their entire life doing little more than eating. And while you might crave a pizza or some chocolate cake from time to time, chances are slim to none that you’re craving the main food source of termites — wood, flooring and wallpaper.
Remember when flash mobs were all the rage? Termites might not dance with synchronized moves; however, they do have a mob mentality. They are very social and the activity in their colonies is dictated by swarm intelligence. So, even though a colony made be made up of more than 2 million termites, they all work as a single unit. The needs of the group take precedence over all individual needs.
