This is an article from a Facebook post of Unit Entomologi dan Pest JKN Perak.
In summary, the article says termite queen is one of the largest insect and has thousands of termites caring for her.
She can breed more than 2000 eggs a day and the termites have different responsibilities. These responsibilities are nest building, workers that search for food, soldier termites that protect the nest and other termites.
Termite queen can live up to 25 years and is not mobile. She is carried around by other termites if she wants to move to a safer location.
She is located at the center of a nest and therefore, very well protected.
If you want to eliminate a termite colony, it is necessary to eliminate the queen.
