Well they're still alive, so that's a start. For lower termites, first brood does take ages to develop. Just be glad you aren't keeping Zootermopsis nevadensis - I think a subspecies of that species can take up to 2 years to get anywhere. Undoubtedly, lc3 will be along to correct me if I'm wrong. Is the substrate still moist enough?


I keep termites - check them out! I've also made a guide...

I've been adding water every few weeks.
Although not much gets absorbed in so it still well hydrated
