What does a termite larva or termite eggs look like?

Question: What does a termite larva look like? What do their eggs look
like?

 

ANSWER: The eggs are very small, and you are not likely to see them. Termites do not really have a larval stage. Many entomologists call the larva the hatchling or the first instar of the termites. Others call the nymphs or immatures larvae. Regardless, immature termites look very similar to adults—white, soft-bodied insects.
