Formosan Subterranean Termite Social Castes; Soldiers, Swarmers, Workers, Kings & Queens
Formosan subterranean termites are social insects with three distinct castes. The soldiers or protectors that keeps the colony safe from enemies and predators, the king and queen and swarmers or alates which are future reproducers of other colonies. There are also the workers which do all the work, feeding the king and queen as well the soldiers, caring for the young, constructing new tunnels and repairing old ones, and foraging for food and so on. Swarmers will leave the colony to begin a new one and are equipped with wings which they will shed when they commence with the new colony, typically in the spring. The soldiers are by far the aggressors and are the first on the scene of a tunnel collapses to protect the workers or if predators invade.
