Do termites bite humans?
Answer . No. They do not bite and they carry no diseases harmful to humans.
To digest cellulose, organisms must produce the enzyme cellulase . Humans and termites are unable to produce cellulase themselves but termites have living in their gut simpl…e organisms ( protozoa and bacteria ) which can produce the enzyme.. This is an example of mutualism - a relationship between two species in which both organisms benefit. The protoza and bacteria benefit by receiving a constant supply of food (wood) from the termite. The termite benefits from the energy-rich sugar released from the cellulose by the termites.. For more details see:. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Termite
No, a termite cannot live in human hair.
No, carpenter ants live in already decayed and damp wood. Termites actually eat wood. Neither is a danger to humans unless termites cause your house to fall down while you are… in it.. Carpenter ants can be. My daughter disturbed a rotten log some were nesting in. They got all over her legs and bit her. We got her out almost immediately, but she still had about 50-60 bite marks. They actually bit out very small little pieces of her skin. The next day the area didn't look so good and she had a slight fever. She had to be put on antibiotics. Her pediatrician explained to me that carpenter ants actually can carry impetigo.
Termites do not bite. Not other humans and animals, at least. They eat wood, but to eat wood, they must "bite" the wood to take it apart. So technically, yes, they bite, but n…ot living creatures.
nothing just a mark on the place u bit urself
Yes, they can.
Termites absolutely have members in the colony who can bite, not only that they seem to use some kind of chemical weapon. I discovered this after leaving a pile of timber unde…r my house for a year and had to destroy the colony that colonized it. The damage to my arms and legs was severe and I decided to take a photo even though the attack was a month ago. The first three weeks there was low pain but blisters formed 5 or 6 times a day, then round blisters changed shape to a hard point and then burst. After a month the blisters are subsiding but have become much more painful especially when taking a shower it seems to affect my nerve endings at the location of the blisters. hope this is of scientific interest. email@example.com
I'm not sure what can happen when you get termites in a home. we are from the north and Florida is our first experience with them
Yes, a human can bite you, although it is considered very bad behavior.
I don't really know but termites are really different from humans so their feeding habits are different than ours.
no, unless the human is dead and not defending itself
yes they can cause your house to collapse and they are disgusting.
