It has already been shown (Rosedale, 1945) that during metabolisism, insect nucleic acid is broken down to its components. The nucleotide guanylic acid was found to be one of the breakdown products. The work is now extended. The subjects are soldiers and workers of the termite Trinervitermes havilandi.
