Termites are a species of insects originally from Earth. They were brought to the Koprulu Sector, though it is unknown by what method they were brought from Earth.

As a child, Erik Snabb lost his home to a termite infestation. He stated that the zerg hives built into the snow mountains of Braxis reminded him of that memory.
