amitermes neogermanicus collection

  • 16th june and 19th June: found 2 little chambers with some amitermes neogermanicus. No soldiers nor reproductives, only workers (seems to have 2 stage, one smaller and whiter, the other bigger and more pigmenter)
  • Termites were put in 4% agar nest to see if i could use them in caste determination experiments, as apparently soldier can be formed from workers in Amitermes. I have to see if they accept to eat the artificial diet
  • nest 1 collected 16th june: 9big and 9 small workers (1 big and 1 small were a bit damaged during collection and didn’t survive)
  • also found some transparent ants while digging
