Spring 11th October 2018 Capture vial setup - dirt, damp folded toilet paper, pieces of outer edge of tree/bark
The damp toilet paper is virtually all covered in dirt from the side and top.
I think they are doing so they can forage on it completely udnerground.
That means they have been doing a lot of digging and that is the case.
I see tunnel networks all the way down to the bottom and chambers against the bottom.
On all sides and probably into the middle.
I can now see termites active inside, so they are still alive and kicking.
Soldiers do come up top when I open the lid
There are two alate nymphs against the bottom surface
Container has more condensation now so I won't have to add any water for a while.
But only on one side, so there is a temperature difference
