Esteemed biologist E.O. Wilson famously observed that "a principle difference between human beings and ants is that whereas we send our young men to war, they send their old ladies."
And so do termites.
When they become too old to help their colonies perform risky foraging tasks, elderly members of a termite species called Neocapritermes taracua provide one final service by sacrificing themselves to defend against predators, researchers reported last month in the journal Science.
As rival termites close in on their nest, the selfless termites break apart their bodies to create toxic, sticky goo. That goo seals off tunnels that lead to the termite nest and sticks to would-be predators, disabling or even killing them. With their abdominal walls broken, the termites die too.
Thomas Bourguignon discovered this while collecting termite samples in French Guiana for his dissertation on community ecology.
He also noticed an unusual mechanism they use to carry out these suicidal attacks: They build up pouches on their abdomens that contain a mysterious blue substance.

Bourguignon and his colleagues dubbed these pouches "explosive backpacks." They seemed harmless on their own, but their contents became deadly when mixed with salivary secretions.
