Swarming behaviour of termites in the Province of Sistan and Baluchistan , Iran



Swarming behaviour of termites in the Province of Sistan and Baluchistan , Iran



Pakistan Journal of Zoology 28(1): 85-95



Three species of termites, Postelectrotermes pasniensis Akhtar, Anacanthotermes vagans (Hagen), Microcerotermes diversus (Silvestri), swarmed at the specified plot measuring 1 times 1 acre. Swarming of termites in Iran was witnessed from March to May, much earlier than that of Pakistan. After May, winds blow at very high speed, therefore, no swarming of termites was recorded during June, July and August. Swarming had a relation with the rainfall/relative humidity. In case of P. pasniensis, the sex ratio of males to females was 2:1, and was significantly different from 50:50, according to chi-square test. In A. vagans and M. diversus sex ratio of males to females was 2-1 and 3: 1, respectively.
