Could be these... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nasutiterme...
Yeah they were all over the island. I was told that downed trees don't last too long around there.
Wow! Termites do live in trees there. Thanks for enlightening.... "Known locally as wood lice or wood ants, this Nasutitermes species builds large nests of partially digested wood pulp mixed with their own saliva and feces. The material looks like mud from a distance. The nests are often found broken up on the ground, brought down by their own weight." http://matthewwills.com/tag/st-john/
