Effective Combination Termite Control

William Baumgartner, Henderson, Gregg, Gautam, Bal K.

LSU AgCenter scientists have discovered a novel termite bait that combines both chemical and bacterial control methods. This combination lowers termite resistance to bacterial infection and is more environmentally friendly than a purely chemical method. Lab experiments have shown a significant difference in the mortality of termites with the combination treatment as compared to chemical treatments alone as early as the fourth day of treatment.
