termite definition and meaning

What is a "termite"?

A termite is a small, social insect belonging to the order Isoptera. It is known for its ability to feed on wood and other cellulose-based materials, making it a potential threat to buildings and wooden structures. Termites live in large colonies and have a complex social structure, with specialized castes such as workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals. They play a vital role in ecosystems by breaking down dead plant material but can become a problem when they infest human habitats. Termite colonies construct elaborate nests or mounds and are capable of causing significant damage if left unchecked.
