Although termites are tiny, they have a speedy growth rate and have many effects on humans. Stay with Care Vietnam to find out how to kill termites safely and effectively in the below article.
Termites and their taxonomy
The scientific name for a termite is Isoptera; they are closely related to cockroaches. They are a highly "social" group of insects because termites are the earliest kingdom-formers of all species. Termites are also known as "white ants." However, they are not related to ants and even attack them. Termites include many different categories with distinct tasks:
A queen termite has a small head and large belly with a lifespan of up to 10 years and 12-15 cm in length. They lay a few eggs initially; after 4-5 years, when the genitals mature, the queen can lay from 8,000 to 10,000 eggs.
The worker termites have small bodies and well-developed legs, accounting for about 70-80% of the termite colony. They take responsibility for all jobs in the termite kingdom, such as building nests, making roads, transferring eggs, raising baby termites, etc. The primary and other nests are carefully made up of food and mud. It is a place used for termites to live together.
Differentiated from worker termites, soldier termites do not make up the majority, mainly guarding the nest and attacking the invasion. They have a pair of developed upper jaws; some also have a jaw gland that secretes white emulsion; when fighting, they can spray liquid to numb the opponent. The senses on both sides of the soldier's mouth are extraordinary and losing the ability to take the bait, the worker termites have to feed the soldier termites.
Why do we need to remove termites?
Termites are harmful insects; they appear and destroy wooden objects, buildings, and structures. They can dig nests around the foundation or under the construction floors that increase the risk of subsidence, wriggle into tiny openings, and then fill the ground to move to cause electrical problems, property damage, and even danger to human life. Besides, they also threaten essential documents that need to be protected and stored.
