Hello! I have seen a lot of people keep termites and have wanted to try it out. I have been unable to catch a king and Queen termite until today. I was wondering, what species is it and how do I care for it? What type of founding setup do they need? Thanks!

Thanks! Do you know how to keep these? What should I put them in right now? Is it okay if I put them in a test tube setup or do they need a sspecial setup?

You could put them in a test tube with some moist wood. This species usually only survives off wood that contains a high amount of moisture.
