Termite-Resistant Heartwood: The Effect of the Non-Biocidal Antioxidant Properties of the Extractives (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)

Abstract

Due to a need to develop more environmentally benign methods to control termites, many researchers have studied extractives isolated from naturally resistant heartwood and some plants. While it has long been recognized that extractives affect termite feeding, the relationship between total extractives, extractive types and termite resistance remains unclear… (More)
