Abstract:Three field colonies of the Thai subterranean termite Coptotermes destroy Waksman in an urban area of Bangkok, Thailand, were selected to estimate the foraging populations, using the triple mark-recapture procedure. The foraging populations ranged from 1.13 to 2.75 × 106 per colony. Intraspecific variation in foraging populations among the colonies might be caused by the age of colonies, environmental conditions, and seasons.
