Abstract: Most pest termites in urban areas in Brazil are exotic species, but native species are becoming an increasing problem. This study aimed to identify termite species infesting trees and houses in urban areas of Campos dos Goytacazes, in the north of Rio de Janeiro State. Trees in the streets of sixteen neighborhoods were inspected for termites. Inspections and interviews were also conducted to verify the occurrence of termites in houses. Termites were recorded in 17 % of the 1,307 trees surveyed. Coptotermes ges… Show more

“…The arboreal termite Nasutitermes corniger (Motschulsky) (Isoptera: Termitidae) is endemic to the Neotropical region of South America, occurring mainly in the Atlantic Forest biome in areas of native vegetation (Constantino, 2002; Scheffrahn et al, 2005; Vasconcellos et al, 2008; Gazal et al, 2019). The social foraging behavior of N. corniger comprises three phases (Traniello & Leuthold, 2000; Gazal et al, 2010).…”

“…Em relação à categoria alimentar, a maior abundância observada, foi de térmitas do tipo xilófagas. As térmitas xilófagas são insetos que consomem madeira em ótimas condições de sanidade, e também, em vários estágios de decomposição (Gazal et al 2019), sendo este o seu principal alimento no interior e nas proximidades do manguezal. Segundo Macambira (2002), as espécies xilófagas são importantes para o ambiente por contribuírem na ciclagem de nutrientes e na decomposição da madeira, sendo elas, as xilófagas, as mais abundantes e vulneráveis em florestas tropicais (Vasconcellos et al 2010).…”
