Here’s a better of the BigFatPhids enclosure. Its a horizontal version of their vertical enclosures for Phidippus jumping spiders.
I see two loose termites but all the others have disappeared. I got extra soft rotting wood for them so maybe it’s easier for them to make nests in it than the previous woods I had tried. The extra soft wood I acquired as isopod food.

Oops, might these new termites be subterranean? I was reading a news article that said subterraneans are swarming locally, so uh ... uh oh. I know zero about subs!

Read Nare’s guide.

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25  

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

Yes, subterraneans have been flying in droves.
