Giving the Gift of Termites – Really?

The Gift Of Termites?
The Gift Of Termites?

Perhaps as a child you can remember having an ant farm. You used to love sitting there, watching the ants as they made their way through the dirt. Sometimes you’d even give it a little shake to disrupt all of their hard work. Ant farms provided hours of entertainment for young minds.

One guy has decided that ant farms are a thing of the past, and he’s come up with an even better idea. Termite farms. The termite farms come complete with damp wood termites who feast on their very own hunk of a Douglass fir tree, so they have plenty of food to keep them happy for a long time. When it comes time to add water, you just inject a bit a couple of times a month.

Perhaps you’ve dealt with termites in your home in the past, and you can’t imagine having a termite farm on your desk, or giving your child one to play with and watch. What was the reasoning behind the invention of the termite farm? Its inventor found ants to be boring.

That may be true, but termites probably won’t be welcome in many homes across the country.
