The termite queen can have a new queen by herself.

I feel this is interesting. A Japanese Associate Professor found that 2 to 5% of Yamato Termite queen's children are made by parthenogenesis (an asexual form of reproduction found in females where growth and development of embryos or seeds occurs without fertilization by a male.).
The Associate Professor is guessing that there is only one king in a colony and the queen's life is shorter than the king so the queen is avoiding inbreeding between her daughter and the king by her copy(though parthenogenesis is not the same as cloning).
This reminds me of that....
