1. Scientific and common names.
2. Diet.
3. Native and introduced range.
1. Sirex woodwasp, [i]Sirex noctilio[/i]
2. They are wood-borers; adults don't eat anything, but the larvae are voracious eaters of the inner bark of trees
3. Native to Europe, and central Asia. Introduced into New England

Image
1. Order, Scientific nomenclature, common name
2. List 3 invasive properties of this organism
3. Where are they native to?
4. What is the role of the specimen in this specific picture?
5. Explain their reproductive process. How are new nests created? How many of this species are in each nest?

Okay, I am just going to jump in here so....
1. Blattodea,[i] Copototermes formosanus[/i], Formosan Subterranean Termite 
2. a) Large foraging range 
          b) Extremely difficult to completely eradicate 
          c) Consumes wood at rapid rate
3. Southern China 
4. Worker 
5. After a nest produces alates they fly to a ideal location. Then female mates with males to lay eggs and form royal chamber. After 2 to 4 weeks the eggs hatched and by there second instar stage - the female lays a second batch of eggs. This repeats till a colony is created (can take months for full colony). [No clue on any specific number]
