Two T. geminatus termite nests were excavated in Africa. The first nest was collected from Nguekokh, Senegal, which appears to be constructed on a sandy area (Fig. 1A). The second nest was collected from a green area in Kankan, Guinea. These two site locations are approximately 1100 km apart and differ in soil and vegetation and climate conditions. Both nests were constructed by the same species of termites, the length and height of which are in the range of 4 to 14 mm and 3 to 5 mm, respectively. Both nests were in the Savanna-type vegetation, with higher tree density in Guinea. Both nests were exposed to the sun. The Guinea sample was collected early July 2007, and the Senegal sample was collected early October 2010.
