Termites operate much like bees in that they have workers, soldiers and queens. Any female termite that produces eggs is known as a queen and any male that appears the same and presides next to a queen is referred to as a king. Workers are responsible for foraging, storing food, nest building and maintenance, as well as some defense duties in some species. These worker termites are the largest group and are commonly found inside the deteriorating wood. They also are mainly responsible for feeding most of the other members of the termite colony with substances that come from plant material through the mouth.

Soldier termites are known for their strength and armor and are extremely useful against an attack by ants or other species. The jaws of the soldier termite are so large for defense that they are unable to feed themselves so they’re reliant on the workers for food. Only one tunnel blocking soldier termite is needed to defend a tunnel from a large group of ants.
