(Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) susceptibility to the entomopathogen Metarhizium anisopliae," Journal of Economic Entomology, vol.
formosanus and the native subterranean termites in Louisiana (the Eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes
, and the dark southern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes virginicus, to name the two most common) is its ability to reproduce.
termites were collected from the Brewton-Parker College's woodlands, Montgomery County, GA, and were used within two weeks of collection.
To evaluate termite resistance, Chow and co-researchers placed small sections of each board in jars containing 400 Eastern subterranean termites, Reticulitermes flavipes
. This species is one of the most damaging termites in the United States.
The purpose of this research was to determine if the termite Reticulitermes flavipes
prefer Cedar, Douglas Fir, Whitewood, Red Oak, Poplar, and the Aspen commonly used in residential construction.
A combination of molecular and morphological taxonomy has solved some problems in termite identification, such as revealing synonymous relationships between Reticulitermes flavipes
(Kollar) and Reticulitermes santonensis Feytaud (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) (Austin et al.
Laboratory and field tests against Reticulitermes flavipes
have shown highly variable resistance (Carter and Smythe 1974, Morris et al.
The majority of termite species in the United States are economically important, with the eastern subterranean termite (Reticulitermes flavipes
Kollar) and the Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki) particularly serious threats to wooden structures (Su and Scheffrahn, 1990).
Behavioral evidence for multicomponent trail pheromone in the termite, Reticulitermes flavipes
(Kollar) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae).
