Termite Queen exposed!

The video shows a Termite Queen that was found in a jungle termite mound. The termite queen’s size is as big as our thumb. The queen is surrrounded by the workers. As the queen and the king are mating, the queen will become big and will be hard to move.
She’ll also start sweating profusely, thanks to all that hard baby-making work. While she’s still capable of producing eggs, her children aka her soldiers will keep her clean by constantly licking the sweat from her body as an army of termites eggs keep on coming out from her every 3 seconds

New Species of Termites Discovered After 100 Years

A group of international termitologists that includes Dr. Rudolf H. Scheffrahn, University of Florida, discovered a termite species and described it as new based on its unique shapes and colors, as well as its genes.

Termites

While the last species of the termite genus Proneotermes has been discovered more than a hundred years ago, now scientists have discovered a new and a third one. Part of the fauna living in the dry forests in Colombia, its name was inspired by the magic realism of the fictional town of “Macondo” from the novel ‘One hundred years of solitude’ by Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel García Marquez.

Termitologists Robin Casalla, Freiburg University, Germany, and Universidad del Norte, Colombia, Dr Rudolf H. Scheffrahn, University of Florida, and Prof Dr Judith Korb, Freiburg University, discovered a termite species and described it as new based on its unique shapes and colors, as well as its genes. The new termite is published in the open access journal ZooKeys.

Furthermore, there is a story behind the name of this new species, called Proneotermes macondianus. “Macondianus” refers to the fictional town of “Macondo” in the novel ‘One hundred year of solitude’ written by Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel García Marquez. Macondo stands for a forgotten microcosm in the history of Colombia with unimaginable events. According to the story, the magical realm was eventually wiped off the map by gigantic storms of the Caribbean as a form of divine punishment to the violation of the biblical laws of genetics, incest.

P. macondianus may have been one of those characters playing in the novel during the destruction of Macondo, remaining unrecognized until today,” comments lead author Robin Casalla.

In Colombia many species still await their discovery, either in the wild, or frozen in time in museum cabinets and lacking a name. The only way to refer to them, is by pointing to them with your finger. But now, P. macondianus has been described in ZooKeys.

The soldiers of this species have a characteristic elongated, rectangular heads, about 5 – 7 mm long, ranging in color from black (at the tip) to ferruginous orange (at the back). P. macondianus has a voracious appetite for drywood, especially thin branches of less than 2 cm in diameter, and lives in small colonies of about 20 individuals. Although few drywood termites are considered pests in some urban areas, P. macondianus lives only in the wild and prefers tropical dry forests.

The termite P. macondianus ‘sentenced’ to over a hundred years of ‘solitude’, has now been given a second chance to not be forgotten again, being recognized as part of the Colombian natural ecosystem.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Restaurants ordered to shut down

TWO restaurants in Jalan Bandar, Pusat Bandar Puchong, have been ordered to shut down by Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) because of their lackadaisical attitude towards cleanliness.

Both the premises had been given Grade D as they were dirty and not well-maintained.

Council health officers inspecting the restaurants found slippery and dirty floors, one even had food waste strewn all over its floor.

Signs of cockroaches were also seen near food supplies in the kitchen.

Workers at one of the restaurants were clad in dirty shirts, had long fingernails and were not in proper footwear, while at the second eatery, it was discovered that some of the workers had not received vaccination for food handling.

Workers were also caught washing dishes and preparing food in the back alleys and near drains.

The two restaurants were also guilty of failing to practise proper food separation of the raw ingredients and instal grease traps as well as allowed food waste to flow into the drains.

The health and cleanliness inspection was also carried out in 13 other restaurants along Jalan Bandar 1 and 2 in the same spot check.

In total, 18 compounds and 14 notices to improve cleanliness were issued.

MPSJ Corporate Communications officer Muhammad Azli Miswan said this was a routine check by the council’s Health Department.

“As of October, MPSJ has ordered 70 food premises to close for cleanliness problems. Inspections will also be conducted when there are public complaints,” he said.
