The temporal dynamics and social interaction in the foraging activities of the open-air processional termite Hospitalitermes (Termitidae, Nasutitermitinae) were studied in Borneo, Southeast Asia. H. medioflavus and H. sp. A tended to forage from evening to the next morning. On average foraging activity occurred every 3.2 days. Some synchronization of foraging events among colonies was observed, which appeared to be caused by rainfall levels.¶ Temporal dynamics during foraging activity was… CONTINUE READING
