Any chance Florida will be underwater before the termites make it off the peninsula? I don;t think underwater termites are an issue in most cases.

Alternatively, Termites are a great source of sustainable protein that was utilized by our ancestors for thousands of years. This fast growing breed might be perfect for domesticating.

In a highly monitored, locked, metal / concrete farming facility, yes. :) I would not be opposed to eating them either. However, they sound like they would be quite the pest if accidentally spread across country alive.

Yes, of course. Termites are terrible. I dealt with just the normal kind and it took a lot of effort to keep them from destroying the few wooden window frames in a concrete house. And yes, I did try eating a few. Not the tastiest to my western palate. Maybe they need to be processed into a more conventional looking food product or maybe even just cooked and served with ketchup.
