Termites are some of the world's most fascinating insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life photos bring the termite's world to life, introducing readers to a termite's diet, habitat, enemies, and methods of defense. Readers will also explore the caste system and be able to recognize worker, soldier, and reproductive termites. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the termite's antennae to its stinger. The digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place termites within the order Isoptera. Readers are also encouraged to consider the benefits and drawbacks of termites, as well as how they impact our daily lives. From dry wood termites to mound builder termites, young entomologists will enjoy uncovering the lives of these amazing creatures. Informative sidebars and Bug Bytes aim to peak readers' interest, while bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability.
