Silahkan membaca dahulu beberapa hal penting mengenai sistem pencernaan makananan oleh rayap (termites) di bawah ini:

KutipTermites are generally grouped according to their feeding behaviour. Thus, the commonly used general groupings are subterranean, soil-feeding, drywood, dampwood, and grass-eating. Of these, subterraneans and drywoods are primarily responsible for damage to human-made structures.

All termites eat cellulose in its various forms as plant fibre. Cellulose is a rich energy source (as demonstrated by the amount of energy released when wood is burned), but remains difficult to digest. Termites rely primarily upon symbiotic protozoa (metamonads) such as Trichonympha, and other microbes in their gut to digest the cellulose for them and absorb the end products for their own use. Gut protozoa, such as Trichonympha, in turn rely on symbiotic bacteria embedded on their surfaces to produce some of the necessary digestive enzymes. This relationship is one of the finest examples of mutualism among animals. Most so called "higher termites", especially in the Family Termitidae, can produce their own cellulase enzymes. However, they still retain a rich gut fauna and primarily rely upon the bacteria. Due to closely related bacterial species, it is strongly presumed that the termites' gut flora are descended from the gut flora of the ancestral wood-eating cockroaches, like those of the genus Cryptocercus.

Some species of termite practice fungiculture. They maintain a 'garden' of specialized fungi of genus Termitomyces, which are nourished by the excrement of the insects. When the fungi are eaten, their spores pass undamaged through the intestines of the termites to complete the cycle by germinating in the fresh faecal pellets. They are also well known for eating smaller insects in a last resort environment.

Jika rayap memakan antibiotik yang dapat membunuh protozoa pencerna di dalam perutnya (mis: Metronidazole), seharusnya dia bisa mati dong?  :DBerarti teknik baru membunuh rayap yang lebih elegan adalah memberinya makan kayu yang diolesi antiobiotik.  :PSilahkan ditanggapi.

semakin sederhana suatu organisme maka mutasinya bisa berlangsung lebih mudah. itu kenapa resistensi cepat timbul jika antibiotik tidak diberikan tepat dosis.

Yap, masuk akal sekali. Berarti pemberian antibiotikanya sekali saja tapi banyak banget.

bener juga, sebab memberikan antibiotik dalam jumlah sedikit juga sebenarnya memberikan kesempatan bagi bakteri yg kebetulan punya resistensi lebih tinggi untuk bertahan & ketika keadaan sudah lebih baik, baru ia mulai kembali memperbanyak diri sehingga yg tersisa adalah bakteri2 resisten antibiotik

@atas = Nah, itulah suatu contoh dari evolusi Darwinian... ups, OOT.. Kaburrr!
