I've read that termites are a big problem in Belize. Are both subterranean and drywood species prevalent in the coastal areas? Any Termitidae experts out there?

Thanks, Tom W.

Walk through the forest and you will see large termilte nest attached to trees. Open a book that has been sitting in one place for while and chances are good that it will be hollow. They are just a member of Belize's wonderful diverse animal/human/insect/bird population. There are , however, a number of ways that the locals keep termites out of their homes.
