Of course, just as important to the termites' diet as cellulose is water. Feeding Termites require water every few hours in order to stay alive, which is why termites can be seen swarming near the surface of the ground at times as the workers collect both food and water to bring back to other termites within the colony. It's important to note that it's only the workers of the colony which will gather resources for the rest of the termites within; Breeding Termites and the colony's soldiers will die if they don't have a steady supply of food and water gathered by workers, as they won't go off in search of food for themselves.
