Termites are a vital element in the ecosystem of forest. Most of them feed on decaying wood, which they granulate and carry to their nest sometimes for a few dozens of meters. In their guts there are bacteria and flagellates that decompose cellulose. Considering the hard work of termites their life span is quite impressive. A worker termite can live for 1 to 4 years and some queens reached 50 years.
