Tracheoles are fine tubes that make up part of the respiratory system of insects. Air enters the insect's body through the spiracle and enters the trachea. From the trachea the air moves to the small tracheoles. The tracheoles end within the body cells. Gases move by diffusion within the tracheal system.

Termite genomes are generally relatively large compared to that of other insects; the first fully sequenced termite genome, of Zootermopsis nevadensis, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, consists of roughly Mb, while two subsequently published genomes, Macrotermes natalensis and Cryptotermes secundus, are considerably Class: Insecta.
