Termites along their tunnels on a tree. These tunnels were damaged, but all over the forests there were loads of termite dirt-tunnels covering the bark of trees.

Description

Went to the parents' house to set up the moth light! It had rained just a little tiny bit before hand -- I think that caused lots of bugs to come out.

Description from Wikipedia

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the infraorder Isoptera, of the cockroach order Blattodea. While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants", they are for practical purposes unrelated to the ants (although they are prey to some ants, including the acrobat ant).

No range data available.
