Termite frenzyWritten by Shumba in Bat-eared Fox Research Project (Kuruman River Reserve, Kalahari) on 5 June 2016 à 10:48
At the end of summer, a few days after the first rains, plates termites emerge by the thousands in a very short burst (1-3nights). When that happens, forget walking around at night with a torch, you'll be covered by them!! But if you can brave this, then you'll see that everything is feasting on the juicy flying insects in a frenzy! After flying from their nest, the plates soon drop their wings, find a mate and start digging to start a new colony.
Spider of some sort
A greedy one!
The battle field...
