4 Interesting Facts About Termites

1. Termites and Cockroaches Are Similar

TermitesTermites and cockroaches have both been around for millions of years. In fact, both of these insects are descended from the same ancient ancestor. The first signs of termites date as far back as 100 million years ago. 

2. Termites Look Out for Each Other

In a termite colony, each insect has their purpose. When termite soldiers notice signs of danger, they’ll tap their bodies against the sides of the colony so a warning vibration alerts the others. 

3. Some Termites Can Fly

Termites are always looking to procreate and grow their colonies. As such, the king and queens of termite colonies have wings and can fly longer distances to find a mate and start other colonies. Once they settle on a new location, they can break off their wings. 

4. Termites Can Be Beneficial

While termites can quickly wreak havoc on your home, there are instances where their presence is beneficial. In forests, for example, their ability to quickly and efficiently break down plant fibers into new soil is a much needed part of the regrowth process.
