The aggressiveness of this termite, the unique climate and soil conditions in Hawaii, and the use of Douglas-fir wood, which resists impregnation with chemical preservatives, make the adoption of termite-control methods developed in other regions problematic. Both laboratory and field experiments were designed to simulate spray applications of disodium octaborate… CONTINUE READING
