In- irmalion is difficult to verify. Rely on your own judgmenl Termites and ants Andy sends a complete 20- -volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Susan Bortzfield, age 13, of Millers- vllle, Pennsylvpnia, for her question; Do termiles live like ants? Termites are called white ants because both these insects live in similar communities. They do not look alike and they are not closely related. But both live In family colon- ies, strictly organized in castes, or classes, that per- form specialized duties. Both ants and termites build compli- cated nests o! earthy mater- ials. The numerous ant species are famous for their special talents. Compared with them, r the termites have several han- dicaps and one great ad- vantage. Termites are the so-called white ants that devour wood and ruin the timbers of build- Ings. It is said that the ants we their mortal enemies. But keeping a few ant nests on the premises Is not guaranteed to protect the old homestead. Though both insects have simi- lar life styles, they are very different insects. The ants have Bklnny waists and come in var- ious darkish colors. They are related to the bees and wasps. The pasty white termites have no waists and Ihey belong in a different insect order. The termiles are blind and though most of them live in the tropics, they are unable to cope with long periods of bril- liant sunlight. They overcome these handicaps by building tunnels over the routes thej travel outdoors. In the tropics, their nests may be enclosed in tall structures wilh thick walls made of hard, dry earth. Inside the nest, the termite colony is organized like most ant species. All members be- long either to royal, worker or eoldier castes and psrform the duties for which they were born. The ant royal family is i queen mother and a number o short-lived drones. The soldiers and workers are unfertile fe- males. Things are somewha different in the termite soc ioty. The termite royal family al ways includes a number o fertile princes and princesses These dark colored, winged in sects are not blind. The wing less workers and soldiers are males and females. How ever, the termite society de- pends upon the reigning queen to lay her eggs. Her pasty white body may be swollen with eggs and the queen of a tropical termite nest may look like a fat sausage, threi inches long. Both ant and termit workers tend the eggs and in fants nurseries throughout th nest. They also tend and feec the larvae as they develop through gradual stages to be come adults. The ants, o course, develop through four distinct stages egg to larva pupa to adult. Termites can feed on wexx which makes them rather spe- cial m the world of insects an larger animals. But they can not do this without help. W know that certain protozoa an decay bacteria can break down the tough cellulose fibers 1 woody plant tissue. Some 'o these protozoa live in termit tummies. The termites us their strong jaws to c h o m wood and their personal pr> tozoa help to digest it. Questions nsfcea ctilMierj of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
