Reticulitermes flavipes is a common termite in the eastern part of the USA. In the 1930's this species was introduced to Hamburg by imported wood. Damage on trees and buildings was identified all over the period. Until now it was impossible to eradicate the termite colonies by means of pest control. Reasons are the hidden way of life, the great regeneration of reproductive forms and the resistance against available insecticides.ZusammenfassungR. flavipes ist eine Erdtermite mit Vorkommen im… 
A new finding of Reticulitermes flavipes in northern Italy
TLDR
The finding of an additional R. flavipes infestation in Vailate (Lombardy), about 70 km from Olgiate Olona, indicates that this pest may be more widely distributed than previously known.

First Report of Reticulitermes flavipes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in Italy
TLDR
The first record of Reticuliterms flavipes (Kol l?r) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in Europe was in 1837, in Vienna, Austria, after infested plants were discovered in the green house of the Sch?nbrunn Palace.
Vorrats‐ und Materialwirtschaftliche Entomologie: Reticulitermes (Ins., Isopt.) in Mittel‐ und West‐Europa
TLDR
Gewisse morphologische Unterschiede lassen sich den beiden okologisch-biologischen Rassen von R. flavipes und R. lucifugus durch besondere Aktivitat and Widerstandsfahigkeit aus zuordnen.
Termites (Isoptera) in the Azores: an overview of the four invasive species currently present in the archipelago
TLDR
This contribution summarizes the current status of the known termites of the Azores and presents a comparative description of these species, their known distribution in the archipelago, which control measures are being used against them, and what can be done in the future to eradicate and control these pests in theAzores.
Potential spread of the invasive North American termite, Reticulitermes flavipes, and the impact of climate warming
TLDR
A spatiotemporal model to study the growth and dispersal of termite colonies within favorable habitat and predicted the termite’s future spread given climate warming for the period from 2013 to 2030 shows that an increase in temperature should increase the amount of unfavorable habitat and termites could continue to spread within this region.
Morphology and phylogeny of Reticulitermes sp. (Isoptera, Rhinotermitidae) from Cyprus
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis shows that, contrary to what might be expected, the samples with the highest affinity with Cypriot samples are not those from the nearby mainland (south Turkey, Israel), but from north-eastern Greece, so the possibility that populations exist it that region with an affinity towards Cypriots cannot be ruled out.
THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF NEOLITHIC WATERLOGGED BEECH WOOD ( FAGUS SYLVATICA L.) TO DESTRUCTION BY RETICULITERMES LUCIFUGUS ROSSI
TLDR
It seems that under natural conditions where there is a poss ible choice between different wood species, the infestation by termites of waterlogged beech wood uncovered in archaeological work does not necessarily happen.
Relationship between invasion success and colony breeding structure in a subterranean termite
TLDR
The finding that the New Orleans population exhibits the same breeding structure as its related introduced populations suggests that this native population is pre‐adapted to invade new ranges, and is likely to play an important role during the invasion process.
Phylogenetic Analysis of the Subterranean Termite Family Rhinotermitidae (Isoptera) by Using the Mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase II Gene
TLDR
Maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analysis of DNA sequences support existing hypotheses that Mastotermitidae is the basal lineage among extant termites, and the family Rhinotermitaceae is polyphyletic given the current familial status of Serritermitidae.
