The subterranean termite Reticulitermes flavipes (Rhinotermitidae) is widespread throughout the eastern U.S.A., where it is important both as a decomposer of wood and as an economic pest. The social organization and modes of colony foundation in Reticulitermes spp. are highly flexible (reviewed by Thorne 1998). However, the cryptic nesting and foraging habits of these subterranean species has made it difficult to conduct extensive studies of their social and spatial organization. Consequently… CONTINUE READING
