Live Termite Colony

I once took a 20 gal aquarium filled it with dirt & balsa wood for food.
Then put in a partial subterranean colony with the queen.
The queen died but secondary reproductives formed.
Kept a sprayer handy & watered it daily.
Good thing I put a screen on the top - about 14 months later they swarmed!

most of us just get dogs or cats
