Termite foraging on toilet roll baits in semi-arid savanna, south-east Botswana (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Termite foraging on toilet roll baits in semi-arid savanna, south-east Botswana (Isoptera: Termitidae)



Sociobiology 30(2): 133-143



Species-specific patterns of termite foraging on toilet roll baits placed at different densities within Acacia savanna in southeast Botswana were recorded over a summer rainfall season. Foragers of Microtermes luteus were both most abundant and widely spread among the baits whilst Allodontermes rhodesiensis and Odontotermes latericius were more localized in their foraging activity.
