The aardwolf’s favorite food is insects, especially termites, which it helps to control.

Aardwolves feed primarily on nasute harvester termites, mainly on Trinervitermes bettonianus in East Africa, Trinervitermes rhodesiensis in Zimbabwe and Botswana, and Trinervitermes trinervoides in South Africa.
