Total levels of uric acid, soluble proteins, lipid, glycogen, and body water were determined for Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) workers 24–72 h after field collection. In addition, levels of biological molecules were compared for termites collected from the same inspection ports within 24 h after field collection, and after laboratory captivity of 6 or 9 mo. Uric acid content, described in a previous study as steadily accumulating in R. flavipes termites in captivity, was found to be low or undetectable in workers tested after 6 or 9 mo in the laboratory.
