It's been known for a while that plants can communicate with their neighbors via the Mycorrhizae network. Amazing how much stuff is happening down at the microscopic level. Like the fact that humans have way more bacterial cells than human cells, and we would be near death without them.
That's how termite fumigation works: The gas does not kill the termites. It kills all their gut bacteria, and they starve to death.
