Pest World for Kids: Will They Eat It? Headphones

Termites can cause damage out-of-sight and out-of-earshot. Watch as they chew through a pair of headphones with speed and ease.

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
