The one thing I learned the most, which was awesome and a little quote from the article
"Incisitermes minor is well adapted to living in arid habitats. Its natural geographic range includes many areas of low precipitation and high summer temperatures. Furthermore, sound wood under some extremely dry conditions, such as those found in inland Southern California on hot, summer afternoons, contains only about six to seven percent water. Western drywood termites obtain water either directly from the wood on which they feed or they produce it themselves through oxidative metabolism (Becker 1969). Drywood termites also have another adaptive mechanism for conserving water. Undigested matter in the alimentary canal passes through specialized rectal glands in the hindgut. These glands reabsorb water from the feces producing a dry pellet with a distinctive hexagonal shape."
That is really neat. That is an awesome evolutionary trait.
The webpage has a bunch of other good info on Western drywood termites.
