Termite (worker)

TermiteMost termite species feed on wood, which they can digest because of special microorganisms in their intestines. Termites can be very destructive to buildings. Like ants, they have a highly evolved society, with workers, soldiers, and a reproductive caste which has wings. Some species even have a special caste with nozzles in their heads for secreting a fluid to build and repair nests. With this nozzle, they can spray repellent at invaders. Beware, ants!
