    I think termites should break your house yes I agree with the infestation part I think they should destroy a bit fast instead slofie every now and then you replace a block or kill a couple it’s to easy Minecraft survival even on hard is still fairly easy you should be able to disable them breaking your stuff but I also would like crawling to be added on bedrock like clicking the crouch button fast twice would be easy this is for the termite mounds it should have a hole in it you go in and crawl around maybe so you can’t cheat it it takes you to a different place when you enter you teleport to like a big block of dirt but anyway you crawl through the tunnels and find the king and queen and if you kill them you get like some stacks of wood and dirt I think meerkats should have a similar thing so you can crawl in there burrows sorry if it’s hard to understand sometimes my brain go to fast comment any questions or to clarify oh also to get rid of termites just like destroy not infected blocks around infected ones and burn or put some water to get rid of them

    How are you supposed to build?!?!?! Adding termites is such a ridiculous idea! Imagine spending hours on building and then it gets destroyed by termites!

    I like the idea but there should definitely be a way to turn them off using /gamerule

    Has anyone here seen Hermitcraft 7 with Iskall85's tree? If these are added, there has to be a cheap, non-ugly block to protect yourself from them

    So...after looking through the comments...maybe there is a way to put...like...termite repellent in an area? Some sort of termite repelling thing, maybe when you place it it looks like a small rock sort of thing and emmits particles? I don't know, but people do make a good point...massive woody bases would become impossible. I don't think there should be any treasure in their mounds, people are complaining about the gold stuff in ruined portals, sticking diamonds in every termite mound around would make them either too rare a feature or too commen loot.

     

    So main part is some sort of temite reppellent that will make termite run away in a 15 block radius, maybe it is like...soul soil and 3 stone makes 5 of these?

    How I think termites should be taken care of:

    -TNT

    -Fire(Magma Blocks,etc)

    -Water

    -Some type of trap that could kill the termites, or a potion or oil of some sort you could add to wood to repel them.

    Termites would cause lots of trouble for people trying to build with wood. I get that meerkats could eat them, but what do you do before you have the available resources to get one? I fine with termites being added, but there should be an item to repel them and be easy to craft, like the soul torch, but easier to obtain.

    Or an anteater so the can help with them to but they can also take out thier nest and the anteater could be tamed with with like frute or a seed and to breed them and you put a lead on them 

    Say the have a nest and it looks simular to a coral would like a bunch of mounds next to each other as if it was a village or something and the only to get the mound is with silk touch but you can break it with a tool but it wont be a block u can place down and you will be able to catch a termite with a bottle or somethine incase someone want to make an inclosure for them to have as pets or something and if you break a nest the termite will do something to you and if the nest is destroyed then it drop termite eggs to where they only way to hatch them is by having a mound and the mound is where the can reprodce more of them without having to breed them like the other mobs so the only way to get rid of the to break the nest

    Amazing suggtion I like it's freezing aspect as long as you don't attack them they won't destroy your wood,or let them attack any near wood based block but add termite eaters to protect you if you help them.

    Termites were suggested in the comments section.  Maybe you could elaborate there.

    Mabye once a block is infested when they find one, if a player, mob, item, or other entity is on it, it will break.

    I think termites should have a chance of spawning after you break a block of wood in desert Savannah and mesa biomes and be like silverfish...

    Are termites still going to be added even though they weren't voted in?

    This would be  another thing to deal with in survival and I think it would be great

    It's a strange idea but don't call them termites or model then strictly after these household pests. If they are going to be a destructive feature then make them a fantasy creature.

    Additionally if they are going to eat wood then have a given "strain" only prefer a certain wood type. So if you find a critter colony eating the oak out of your house, you could replace the lost oak with birch or dark oak until you're sure you've wiped out the infestation. Or if they prefer the birch, it's time to build out of spruce or whatever else is handy. (Otherwise building anything stationary out of wood might be seen as impractical when stone or dirt may be more plentiful locally).

    coarse dirt and any kind of stone should stop them cold. And just for purposes of avoiding unnecessary frustration, these critters should have no interest in fences, gates, ladders, chests, tables, doors, etc.

    But if you can harvest them and cook them, you could make them into a food item or an alternative food source for chickens.
