I completely agree with your point on aliens with hive minds and psychic powers. You'll be pleased to know that I will immedeatly begin work on an insectoid species lacking both hive mind and psychic powers. I will call them Sylaphids, and they will resemble the wasp/ant lineage in some ways, and the Termite lineage in others.
There's a reason our favored government type is "Mother Knows Best State", after all.
Well, this might be interesting once you have something to read :)
Termites' most memorable difference from other eusocial insects is that they're more egalitarian. Reproductive kings and queens stay together in the hive rather than males mating once and then dying, and sterile workers come in both vestigially-male and vestigially-female versions.
Also their soldiers have glue guns on their heads (in some species), and build giant freaking towers out of mud and their own feces, even using the magnetic field of the f*cking planet to guide construction for when they have to building flat sided towers. I learned this recently, by the way. Magnetic termites live in water-logged soils, where underground chambers as a refuge from the sun's heat are not an option. Thus, they build towers that are flat and always face north to south, so it catches the sun in the morning so the termites can warm up, only faces the sun on the top edge at the peak of noon, then again only on one face in the afternoon when the temperature goes down again.
Oh, and elsewhere where Termites can dig underground, they construct a whole airflow ventilation system to vent stale air and freshen it up with new air from outside. The tower is full of little pore and tunnel entrances that allow fresh air into a giant central chimney (though the top is closed). Wing going around the tower to the other side creates a small suction that sucks the stale air in the chimney out through more tunnels and channels. Pretty good for creatures with brains the size of a pin's tip.
Also, the key difference between Termintes and Ants (ancient enemies, by the way. Just look at the ongoing Matabele Ant VS Bellicose Termite war.) is that Ants are descended from Wasps, who are areal hunters (carnivores). Indeed, Ants are really just wasps minus the wings plus increased social organization. (Also, leaf cutter ants, but we won't talk about them).
Termites, on the other hand, are descended from cockroaches and are herbivores.
Bulkan pi**ed me off, again.
You deserve it sometimes.
That's because I am much angry IRL and I do the worst: attacking my own cousins for annoying me.
In which, incidentally, the ants are usually the aggressors while the termites are just trying to defend themselves.
Right. The Matabeles attack the Termites because they are carnivores and their prey of choice are Termites.
I just find it interesting that the evolution of Matabeles would have used war as a means of feeding.
Also, I sent you a thing.
