Flying termites, or alates   Flying termites, or alates, are the sexual form of termites which swarm from the colony in huge numbers to fly weakly to a new site to form another colony, where they soon shed their wings and set up housekeeping. One of the termites here has already shed its wings. Modern-day termites time the emergence of all colonies in a region to swamp the predators, giving at least a few the opportunity to found new colonies.
Termite   Termites are of insect order Isoptera, are ancient in origin and are distant relatives of cockroaches. In aggregate, the flatulent termites are the largest source of methane gas on Earth.
