Pacific Dampwood Termite Reproductive -- Zootermopsis angusticollis - Zootermopsis angusticollis

Pacific Dampwood Termite Reproductive -- Zootermopsis angusticollis - Zootermopsis angusticollis
Victoria, (Mount Douglas Park), British Columbia, Canada
September 1, 2005
Every evening at sunset, from the middle of August to October and peaking at the beginning of September, reproductive Pacific Dampwood Termites seem to flutter everywhere on Southern Vancouver Island; but they are particularly numerous in wooded areas. This one landed at the base of an old Douglas-Fir tree, dropped its wings and started poking around at every crevice on the bark, until it finally found the right one and disappeared in it. The tree was littered by scores of broken-off termite wings.
