Abstract Vetiver oil and its components nootkatone and cedrene were assessed as sand treatments for their efficacy to disrupt food recruitment by Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki. Termites were required to tunnel through sand treated with vetiver oil, nootkatone, cedrene, or untreated sand to reach a food source. Results showed that sand treated with vetiver oil or nootkatone disrupted termite tunneling behavior. As a consequence, after 21 d, wood consumption and termite survival were… Expand

Abstract Oil of the physic nut, Jatropha curcas L. (Malpighiales: Euphorbiaceae), was evaluated in the laboratory for its barrier and repellent activity against the Philippine milk termiteExpand
Evaluation of Vetiver Grass Root Growth, Oil Distribution, and Repellency Against Formosan Subterranean Termites
TLDR
There is preliminary evidence that vetiver roots may have use as an additive to garden mulches against termites, and chemical components in the roots of this grass were shown to be effective repellents and toxicants to Formosan subterranean termites. Expand
Comparative effects of vetiver oil, nootkatone and disodium octaborate tetrahydrate on Coptotermes formosanus and its symbiotic fauna.
TLDR
Vetiver oil and especially nootkatone affected Formosan subterranean termites and their protozoa, acting as arrestants, repellents and feeding deterrents, and represent a promising natural alternative for the control of this invasive pest. Expand

Vetiver oil and nootkatone effects on the growth of pea and citrus
TLDR
The results support the possible usage of the two chemicals around buildings and in nurseries for the management of termites, ants, and weeds; or in the nursery industry where quarantines may be in place to prevent the movement of invasive pests. Expand
Biocidal action of silver oak (Grevillea robusta) leaf extract on the termite Heterotermes indicola Wasmann (Blattodea: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Results indicated that silver oak leaf extract has termiticidal properties and could be of value in the development of botanical insecticides for termite control in wood products. Expand
Repellent Effects of Annona Crude Seed Extract on the Asian Subterranean Termite Coptotermes gestroi Wasmann (Isoptera:Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that Annona seed extracts may offer an alternative source of natural insecticide against subterranean termites. Expand
Comparison of natural and conventional insecticides against Formosan termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
Five natural and 16 synthetic compounds were evaluated for termiticidal activity against the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, and naturally derived compounds were generally less active when compared with the conventional insecticides. Expand
Valuation of efficacy and nonrepellency of indoxacarb and fipronil-treated soil at various concentrations and thicknesses against two subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).

TLDR
Both insecticides demonstrated a delayed mode of activity and nonrepellency against the two termite species and were significantly more susceptible to indoxacarb than Formosan subterranean termites, but there was no intercolony differences in susceptibility to either insecticide. Expand
Evaluation of Efficacy and Nonrepellency of Indoxacarb and Fipronil-Treated Soil at Various Concentrations and Thicknesses Against Two Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
Abstract The efficacy and nonrepellency of indoxacarb (150 SC, 150 g [AI]/liter) and fipronil (Termidor SC, 9.1% [AI]) against field-collected eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipesExpand

Toxicity and repellency of semiochemicals extracted from a dolichoderine ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) to the Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Termites were also repelled by extract-treated sand and the chemical repellency lasted for at least one month in treated sand, and the principal repellent components of O. glaber secretions were determined to be cis,trans-and trans,cis-isomers of dolichodial in a 3 :1 ratio. Expand
Toxicity and repellency of components in formulated termiticides against Western subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Sands treated with solvent systems used to formulate commercially available termiticides, except for isofenphos, were toxic to western subterranean termites, killing 24-86% after a 24-h exposure to sand air dried for 1 d, but irrigating solvent-treated sands with the equivalent of 1.27 cm of rainfall removed all toxicity.

Behavioural effects of a neem insecticide on Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
TLDR
The effects of a commercial insecticide formulation (Margosan‐O) containing 0.3% azadirachtin and 14% neem oil on orientation, tunnelling, and feeding behaviour of the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus, are investigated. Expand
Effects of nootkatone and a borate compound on Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) and its symbiont protozoa.
TLDR
Wood treated with disodium octaborate tetrahydrate, with nootkatone, a natural extract isolated from vetiver oil, or with both noot Katones was tested for effects. Expand
Tunneling Response and Mortality of the Western Subterranean Termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) to Soil Treated with Termiticides
TLDR
Termites tunneled only in the untreated soilbelow the soiltreated with chlordane, chlorpyrifos, fenvalerate, isofenphos, or permethrin formulations at concentrations ≥50 ppm, mortality and sublethal effects were observed. Expand
Barrier Efficacy of Pyrethroid and Organophosphate Formulations Against Subterranean Termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
In a laboratory bioassay, termites were allowed to tunnel into a 5-cm core sample of sand treated with termiticides following an application protocol before construction, and results indicated the loss of barrier efficacy of the isofenphos treatment against both termite species. Expand

Toxicity of monoterpenoids and other natural products to the Formosan subterranean termite (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
TLDR
Monoterpenoid alcohols, particularly eugenol, were the most effective as termiticides against C. formosanus and was also more effective as a fumigant than citral and geraniol. Expand

TLDR
Numerous insecticides have been under study for many years in soils in southern Mississippi for protection against subterranean termite attack, and some are still effective after 17 to 21 years. Expand

TLDR
The ability of C. formosanus to distinguish among different ant species on the basis of semiochemicals could be an adaptive response that allows them to recognize particularly threatening enemies. Expand
