Termite migration in Don Chao Poo Forest

There is plenty of evidence of termite activity in Don Chao Poo Forest. There are many termite mounds, new and active ones as well as inactive ones. There is also plenty of evidence that termites can and do destrof trees over a period of time. The termites in this short video have stripped their tree home of most of its bark and left the trunk covered in their trademark sandy deposit. Nevertheless, for the time being at least the tree continues to exist, if not thrive.

I have been in and around North-East Thailand for more years than I can recall. I now live here permanently. I have travelled in 32 countries on 3 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa) so I am a bit of a traveller.
