Coptotermes Lacteus are also called Milk termites. This species of termites are native to Australia. The workers in this species are whitish and partially transparent while the soldiers have a cream color body with large brown heads and mandibles. The Alates of this species are dark brown or black. The termites are social and build the mound. The network of galleries extends in the nearby soil that enables the workers to infest the surrounding area without emerging to the surface of the ground. The termites build small mounds with a thick and hard outer layer and hard inner layer. These build their nests two meters above the ground level. These termites attack the softened timber having contact with soil. The workers and soldiers are wingless and have no eyes. The Alates in this species have compound eyes, with four wings of the same size that are as long as the body.
