1. Prevention

- Minimizing the use of woody materials

- Avoid direct contact of woody parts of

building structure with soil

Wake up

- Ensure that there are no leaks in the building structure

- Good ventilation, air circulation, and lighting

Chemical Barrier

Implemented when the building is finished.

- Rice Planting Injection System: open floor surface injection

with a distance of 1M between points.

In general, this is done in a warehouse for storing goods

Baiting System

Favorite Food

1. Likes materials that contain cellulose. Example: wood,

cotton, and paper

- Check all properties made of wood with

how to tap tap

How Termites Get Into Buildings

1. Fly

2. Creeping

3. Get carried away

Termite Theory of Life

 

  • Blind, active for 24 hours

  • Living in a colony

  • Cryptobiotic - building mud tubes

  • Eating wood / cellulosic materials

  • Metamorphosis: hemimetabola

  • Polymorphy à "commune" society in castes

  • Basic pheromones are released by the queen

  • Trophalaxis
