The Intriguing Habitat for Termites
The Termitat comes in two different styles and has optional accessories such as magnifiers. The soldiers are up to 3/4” long and along with the other colony members are quite observable with the naked eye. With the optional acrylic light-gathering magnifier or electronic USB 200X microscope, you can observe features such as the internal organs related to wood digestion and respiration and fascinating minute aspects of their body and behavior.
Over time the colony will also produce supplementary reproductives. Look for eggs attached to the acrylic in approximately a month and a half after delivery of the Termitat. There is more on this process in the Termitat book.
