or yellowish in color. They make up the bulk of termite colonies. The Soldier defends the colony. They are distinguishable by their large mandibles. The reproductive termite aka “swarmer” is responsible for the reproduction of the colony. They swarm when the conditions are right, then pair up and leave to start new colonies.
