    #Termite Kingdom   
    Once upon a time, in a space dimension known as the Antiverse. Lay nine ant kingdoms of various sizes and temperaments. Some tender and delicate others majestic and prolific. Some modest and non offensive some blood hungry and ravenous. But one night an intruding mass of foreign visitors came flying into the skies of the anta course these were termite Royals future kings and queens of the termite race engaging in their annual mating flights. But having the sacred wedding in Antiverse territory was a death sentence. All the Ant Kingdoms would feast this night. Even the eight-legged paupers waiting in the shadows of their silken favelas the once promising termite kings and queens fell into the river waters of the Selva de Fuego kingdom to the Fire Nation. A stinging fire ant colony the termites became ant food. Termite kings and queens lost their lives in the Hacienda el Dorado as the golden empire seized the termite monarchs to feast upon their meeting naked bodies but perhaps the bloodiest of scenes happened within the Shire Kingdom to the Black Panthers a highly skilled tribe of Asian bullet ant hunters and on this night the ants managed to get down each and every single termite king and queen clamouring about their territories for their lives except for one chosen royal pair ... king and queen a rich and fertile land so they could begin building their own army and so ladies and gentlemen their story begins now welcome to the Antcanada channel.

    #Sighting of Termite Workers   
    but then one day I discovered this the soil tunnels were extending onto the glass whoa boy now AC family are you ready for this looking at the back of the terrarium I checked to see if I could see inside the tunnels and yes visual access into the tunnel but still no termites I decided to come back to check the tunnels in the night. And AC family low and behold I finally got sight of my first termite worker it finally met with another termite worker and another. I did some research and found out that termite workers unlike ants are rarely found out in the open and do not forage unprotected and rely on these tunnels called shelter tubes to protect them from predators especially their arch enemies ants...hardened feces the soil fecal shelter tubes harden and also keep other competing organisms like this miniature wood roach out of their nest. I also was surprised to discover that these shelter tubes protect their sensitive bodies from light. I also was surprised to discover that these shelter tubes protect their sensitive bodies from light which confirms why we rarely see termites foraging out in the open and why my first termite pair died after light exposure turns out the termites emerge at night to build these shelter tubes and that gave me an idea I decided to pluck one of the termite mounds out of the ground Sighting of Termite Workers

    #Termite Facts   
    I finally got to meet them. Behold members of our prolific termite colony aren't they awesome AC family I have never seen termites in a big group like this in real life before. Termites are you social insects that are classified in the infraorder Isoptera which used to be its own order of insects but recently got grouped under the order of ready for it roaches yes fill. Termites evolved from cockroaches during the Jurassic or Triassic period which means way before t-rex and Triceratops walked the earth termites had ... Blattodea isn't that crazy now there are about 3,000 106 species of termites discovered with a few hundred more left to be named you may notice the workers have different sizes one major difference ... each of these termite workers including those soldiers are either male or female but barren so they can't lay eggs unless of course any of the workers molt into reproductive Queens later in their life...Termite Facts

    #Termite King and Queen Mate for Life   
    Now here's another amazing thing that sets Termites from Ants. Unlike Ants where the mating happens only once during a mating flight and the Queen is left solo the male dies after mating. In Termites the male known as a king remains alive and pairs up a Queen, finds a spot underground to roost and mates for life. The King and Queen are inseparable. with the King constantly mating with his queen for her entire whopping lifespan of 30 to 50 years they are allegedly the longest living insect that beats the widowed single mother and lifespan of ... in their gut into the nymphs gun so they too can digest cellulose and other materials adult termites can eat speaking of which I've also learned that termites here in the Philippines will eat Termite King and Queen Mate for Life

    #Termite Mounts   
    But eventually the completely sealed enclosure started to fog up with condensation on the glass which led to a mold outbreak within the territories as well as many casualties of drowned termites on the glass. I decided to leave the ventilation hole unplugged... earthen fingers completely unsupported by anything the shelter tubes continued to form connections between satellite nests so the colony could move freely from nest to nest these shelter tubes even extend downward into the soil and thankfully the termites don't seem too shy to burrow up to the glass where I can see and film them as for the termites themselves I am starting to see more and more termite workers emerging from their satellite nest mounts particularly at night Termite Mounts

Termite Queen Lays 10000 Eggs in Massive Termite Farm

Watch this Massive Termite Farm! Termite Queen lays 40000 eggs per day. Termite Colonies: These pests are highly feared for any home owner and cause some major destruction if left unchecked. But due to overwhelming requests, I finally managed to establish a growing termite farm, from a king and queen pair captured during a termite nuptial flight, as seen in our previous video Ants vs. Termites. The secret lives of termites will truly blow your mind. They are not like ants in so many ways. Join me as we take a closer look at Nature's top detritivores and recyclers. Termite and ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
