Chapter 16: The Correct Usage of the Termite Nest

Translator: Atlas Studios  Editor: Atlas Studios

Bell had no idea what was going on in the outside world.

At this moment, Bell was enjoying his dinner in the primeval forest.

With food in his stomach, he felt much warmer.

After filling his stomach, Bell looked at the comments on the screen.

“Everyone, we might have to get more food tomorrow. I realized that a snake is not enough.”

Bell looked troubled.

“In the primeval forest, our work and rest schedule cannot be like in the outside. The time of clear vision is short. We have to make good use of this time and not waste it at all.”

Because it was not safe to move in the middle of the night in the wild, the best thing to do was to stay in place and continue moving when dawn arrived.

Bell continued to rummage through his backpack and took out the termite nest he had dug out from the ground.

The audience was surprised and curious when they saw Bell take out this thing.

“Host, you said that this termite nest is very useful. What is its use? It should be the time to explain it, right?”

“That’s right, that’s right. It’s time to explain the use of this termite nest.”

Bell looked at the termite nest in his hand and smiled mysteriously.

“Of course it has a great use. Whether we can sleep well today will depend on this thing.”

Bell carefully placed the termite nest into the fire.

Immediately, smoke rose, accompanied by an unpleasant pungent smell.

Everyone was surprised.

“F*ck, why are you throwing it into the fire? Is this thing edible? Are you not full yet? No, isn’t this thing made of soil?”

Many people thought that Bell was treating it as food.

Bell was speechless. He was not yet at the state of needing to eat soil.

Looking at the comments on the screen, Bell explained.

“Alright, let me explain. The reason why we placed this termite nest in the fire was mainly to drive away the mosquitoes.”

“There are a large number of poisonous insects and mosquitoes in the wilderness. They are carrying a large number of pathogens. If we are bitten, we can easily suffer from hysteria. In serious cases, we might even die from infection.”

“We’re camping in the wilderness. If we don’t protect ourselves from the insects, we might suffer tonight.”

“The main composition of the termite nest is formic acid, soil, and some secretions of termites.”

“These things are irritants to insects. The smoke produced by putting them in the fire can drive away mosquitoes.”

“Although the smell is a little pungent, I will be able to sleep well.”

Everyone was enlightened.

“I see. Is the effect of this thing so good? It can even be so effective in the wild to drive away mosquitoes. What if I put a piece at home?”

“Selling termite nests, please contact me through WeChat.”

When they heard that the termite nest had such an effect, some audience in the comments who could not stand mosquito bites were moved.

If there was a need, there would be a market.

Just as someone thought of igniting the termite nest at home, someone immediately posted that they could sell it.

Unfortunately, before the transaction could be completed, Bell’s next words extinguished their thoughts.

“Guys, I know some of you are wondering if it will work if you burn these termite nests at home.”

“There will definitely be an effect. However, when termite nests are burned, they release a very strong and pungent smell. By then, I’m afraid you won’t be able to stay in the house.”

Everyone understood.

In front of the screen, a man looked at the comment on the computer and almost cried.

“No, host, I had just found a way to make money.”

“Previous poster, forget it. Keep the termite nests for yourself.”

The business opportunity came and went quickly.

After finishing the preparations, Bell fell asleep easily.

Everyone looked at Bell’s chubby little face and gently smiled. The female fans were instantly excited.

“I didn’t expect Bell to live in the wild so easily at such a young age. I really don’t know what he has experienced in the past.”

“Could this child have always been living in the wilderness?”

“No way, which parent would be so heartless? Bell is so cute.”

“I don’t think so either. The professional knowledge that Bell has doesn’t seem to be learned through unorthodox means.”

As time passed, although Bell had fallen asleep, the popularity of his live-stream did not decrease at all. There were even some audience who took the initiative to watch the surroundings for Bell, afraid that some ferocious beast would attack in the middle of the night.

The night passed uneventfully. The next morning, just after dawn, Bell woke up.

As soon as the audience saw Bell wake up, the comments rolled in.

“The host is awake. We have formed a fan group. We will take turns to guard for you at night.”

Looking at the messages on the screen, Bell was touched.

“Haha, thank you everyone. Thank you for worrying about me.”

“It’s already dawn. We have to begin today’s goal, but there are still some things to do before that.”

Bell walked to the fire. It was already extinguished, leaving only some charcoal and ash.

Bell collected the charcoal that was no longer burning.

While collecting, he did not forget to explain to the audience.

“Charcoal are very useful. They can help us filter the impurities in the water.”

“I know that. It’s similar to activated carbon.”

An audience replied.

Bell nodded.

“That’s right, the effect is not much different. The difference is that the activated carbon is usually extracted from the coconut shells.”

After gathering the charcoal, Bell found some wild mint nearby. He picked a few pieces and chewed them as natural freshener. A refreshing breath came from his mouth.

He looked into the distance.

“Everyone, it seems like we’re still a distance away from water source. We have to hurry. I will set a small goal for myself today. I will eat till I am full tonight.”

Bell even smiled cutely.

Then, he rushed into the distance without hesitation.

What he did not know was that more people were paying attention to him.
