Pest World for Kids: Will They Eat It? Dictionary

Will termites be able to chew through the alphabet A to Z? Watch as 100,000 termites swarm a dictionary.

Termites are known for their wood-based eating habits, but what happens when they encounter everyday items like a dictionary, shoe, or even a hamburger? We placed household objects including these and others into a tank of 100,000 hungry termites to find out…”Will They Eat It?”

Join Dr. Michael Bentley in this six-part episode series to watch the drama unfold and see what these hungry insects are capable of chewing through. For more information, visit WillTheyEatIt.PestWorld.org.
