Echidnas, sometimes known as spiny anteaters, are a type of egg-laying mammal. The four extant species, together with the platypus, are the only surviving members of that order and are the only extant mammals that lay eggs. Although their diet consists largely of ants and termites, they are no more closely related to the true anteaters of the Americas than to any other placental mammal. They live in Australia and New Guinea. The echidnas are named after a monster in ancient Greek mythology.
The Black and Rufous Elephant Shrew (Rhynchocyon petersi), also known as the black and rufous sengi, is one of 17 species of elephant shrew found only in Africa. Like other members of the genus Rhynchocyon, it is a relatively large species, with adults averaging about 28 cm (11 in) in length and 450-700 g (1.0-1.5 lb) in weight. It is native to Kenya and Tanzania. It eats insects (beetles, termites, ants) and spiders, supplementing this with fruits and seeds.
The banded mongoose (Mungos mungo) is a mongoose commonly found in the central and eastern parts of Africa. It lives in savannas, open forests and grasslands and feeds primarily on beetles and millipedes. Mongooses use various types of dens for shelter including termite mounds. While most mongoose species live solitary lives, the banded mongoose live in colonies with a complex social structure.
A hollow log coffin is a type of coffin used by the Yolngu people of Arnhem Land, Australia. It consists of a tree trunk hollowed out by termites and painted by a clan member of the deceased, with the bones placed inside.[
You can make homemade pet friendly termite killer by combining two parts of borax, two parts confectioner's sugar and one part cornmeal, mixing the three thoroughly. Sugar and cornmeal attract termite workers. Borax is a naturally powdery substance. When termites ingest it, it acts as stomach poison that prevents them from digesting other food and causing them to starve to death
