    Hmm, well the bodies are white and soft looking, but they are not that large.

    If I find a nest I will send a picture. If I find one you just have to pay shipping. I am going scouting early next week and will look for you.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Thanks Copper, I'll mail you a check for the shipping and toss in a couple of plants for your troubles.

    If you pick up the log and the ground isn't covered in termites beneath it then there is a good chance they are the right ones. Either way they'll end up as frog food.

    Hey if found this out the hard way, but if you take a small piece of wood about 2by2by4 and put a tarp over it or something that will keep it moist termites will end up under there at some time or another. It is also important that the tarp doesn't let light through. Termites hate light.

    just remembered: Sending any kind of termite or ant queen is illegal in the usa. Because if the queen got loose, it would re populate in an area it is not usually found in. that is introducing a pharol species, and the fines can be hefty [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] so be careful...

    Especially overseas, eeeshhh. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] One more thing, if you're shipping termites, for god's sake, put the log in a Plastic bag. They can eat cardboard. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Now if you'll excuse me I'm going out termite huntin'. If I get a few cultures going I'll trade a couple to you guys, and keep one or two for my frog "Arsenic". He's a cute lil' Auratus I picked up at a herp show last saturday.

    Man, we have some serious phermoson termites down here in New Orleans. I really don't think you want me to ship them up north though. They tear through homes like crazy, and resist most pesticides. They where brought over from asia in crates or something like that and have just torn through the area. Very hard to control. But, hey, if you want to take some off of our hands, it would be my pleassure.
