The nasty little beggars not only eat our homes, oh no, they have to try and kill us by global warminig . http://www.yaleherald.com/archive/xix/4.7.95/news/globe.html Paul Eggleton, a scientist with Britain's Natural Environmental Research Council, announced last week that termite flatulence is responsible for as much as 20 percent of the world's methane. Eggleton said that each year termites release 88 million tons of methane as they chew through old leaves, trees, and soil. According to Eggleton, "It's a lot of methane, but there are a lot of termites." I am studying a way to use termite gas to power motor vehicles, doe's any one know the termite mass to food ratio neede to produce a cubic yard of gas per hr?
