Description

Small black insects with long bodies, four long transparent wings, short antennae, six legs, and two small pincers. They appear in small swarms and despite having wings, they do not fly well and do not stay in the air for more than a few seconds. Sometimes their wings fall off. They appeared during the day where there was food.

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.
