In the barn we divided into 2 parts

We put shrimp roofs to cover rain and sun for snakes and termites and put 20 to 100 bricks in the cage, stacked on two floors, then put a sheet of corrugated iron on top of the bricks to make a shelter for snakes and termites.

We plant grass; to create a happy environment for termites and light a small lamp in the evening to let the insects fly to create natural food for the termites.

Reproductive termite snakes

Termite snakes reproduce once every 2 months, giving birth to 8 to 12 babies each time. Therefore, in order for termite snakes to have many offspring, we should divide the male-female ratio to 1: 1 to increase the ability of female snakes to conceive.

When a female termite snake is pregnant, we should separate the female snake into a cage that specializes in raising pregnant termite snakes separately and pay attention to monitor, when the female termite snake gives birth to a baby termite snake, we let the female snake go to the cage to live with the male snake to continue to get pregnant, and at the same time let the baby snakes move to another cage to raise them separately.

Breeding breeding snakes

Cage: This is the first and most important factor to ensure a harmonious and friendly environment for the best development of termites.

+ Husband raised 1000 parent termite snakes, with a minimum area of ​​20 square meters and a maximum of 100 square meters (too large, difficult to manage).

+ The cage for raising snakes and termites should be made of 100% soil, in the barn with lots of grass and the cage must have a drain to avoid water stagnation in the cage.

+ The wall of the cage for raising termites can be made of corrugated iron with a height of 50 cm – 60 cm, or built of bricks (if built, it must be lined with glazed bricks or corrugated iron to prevent snakes from crawling out).

+ The barn, 1/3 of the barn has a corrugated iron roof for snakes to shelter from the rain and at night to sleep in it.

Food: Termite snakes are omnivorous reptiles, the main food is rice, trash fish, pig lungs, worm crickets and insects.

+ Termite snakes feed in the morning, at noon and in the afternoon, termites will be exposed to the sun to digest food.
