There are more than 2500 different species of termites or “white ants” that belong to the insect family, “Isoptera”. Thought to have evolved from the common cockroach, termites are one of the oldest living insects still in existence today. Termites live in colonies, where they work and operate in a well-defined system of order. The reproductive termites (known as the “king” and “queen”) maintain the termite population, the workers are those termites which eat wood, and the soldiers keep the colony in order and protect each nest. Both soldiers and workers are blind and sterile and live 2 to 5 years. The reproductive termites, can survive for as long as 70 years.
