k8085-3

A Formosan subterranean termite soldier gnaws on a piece of wood. Soldiers make up approximately 10 percent of a termite colony. Formosan subterranean termites have powerful mandibles for defense against intruders and dark, oval head shapes contrasting with the more rectangular head shape of the native Eastern subterranean termite.
