A comparison of two techniques for determining abundance of subterranean termites in an Arizona desert Grassland

Abstract

Densities of surface foraging subterranean termites were determined by bait and quadrat techniques. Only two species were found in the bait units whereas five were found in the quadrats.Heterotermes aureus (Snyder) andGnathamitermes perplexus (Banks) numbers were reasonably estimated by baiting. However,G. perplexus was severely underestimated by quadrats… (More)
