termite habitat diagram

A diagram shows the habitat created for observation of a colony of Formosan subterranean termites (Coptotermes formosanus) by researchers at the University of Florida. A planar arena (60 × 60 × 0.9 centimeters in thickness) was filled with moistened sand and extended 15 meters in one direction through Tygon tubes. Three small planar arenas (24 × 24 × 0.6 centimeters in thickness) filled with moistened sand were attached at every 5 meters along the linear foraging distance. (Photo originally published in Kakkar et al., Journal of Economic Entomology, September 2017)
