This year we trimmed back a Mango tree so our Avocado tree could get some sun. In the wake of our cutting, these termites decided to make a nest and attempt to finish off the job. Notice how fast the Mango has grown back in 3 months!
Normally the termites would be inside their nest. However, we just disturbed the outside to expose the insects for a photo. Plus, tour guides in Belize say the termites taste like carrots. We had to try it out for ourselves!
I did not taste carrots. Instead, the termite had a peppermint flavor. Maybe it was wishful thinking? I never cared much for carrots. Maybe we will save a couple of bucks and start using termite toothpaste? Don’t worry, Lower Dover Jungle Lodge is not that eco-friendly…yet! Do a jungle hike at Lower Dover and taste the termites yourself!
