Caption: Termite head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the front of a termite. Termites are social insects of the order Isoptera. They can be very destructive in tropical regions because they eat and destroy wooden buildings. They have chewing mouthparts and beaded antennae. Like ants, termites have different body forms to perform different functions (castes). Magnification unknown.
