Do termites die without the queen?

No, termites and the colony will not die without the queen. Yes, termite colonies do need a queen, but if the original queen dies, then the colony will simply replace her with a member of the colony who will develop into a new queen. Termite colonies can adapt in many ways and this is an example at their extraordinary ability to survive.
