Termites 101

video

This is just something I saw when I was in school. Termites work in the dark, so how do they know where they are going? There are pheremones emitted by termites that enable them to travel in the shelter tubes that they build and in the wood that they are working in without losing their way.

What a neat trick! (kinda like a flea circus...but with termites)

Somebody must have drawn a line to Buiscuitville. That's how Dave finds it every day.

Anyways, that paper reminds me of some kind of hypnotic device!
