The Light Southeastern Subterranean termites are only about ⅓ inches long and have lighter brown bodies compared to the Dark Southeastern Subterranean Termites.
The expansion of their colony is done exclusively by the workers, while the soldiers have to ward off predators which mostly consist of small ants, anteaters, and a few other natural predators.
Light Southeastern Subterranean termites depend on wood for survival, especially plywood and structural lumber.
During swarming or mating periods, swarmers fly off to burrow holes into decomposing or rotting wood to begin their colonies similar to the eastern subterranean termite.
