One of the first tasks of the International Research Group on Wood Preservation, when it began its work in 1969, was to compile a series of reports on the common decay fungi which can attack wood. This volume, which contains the first of these reports, has been compiled with the help of mycologists and wood preservation specialists in France, Ghana, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands...
Aggregation and collection of large numbers of Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt for laboratory work
1994 - IRG/WP 94-20022
A method of collecting large numbers of Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt is described. Termites are aggregated in, and subsequently extracted from, 200-litre steel drums. Yield per drum is as high as 5.95 kg (ca 148,750 termites). Compared with other collection methods, the process requires little effort, and losses sustained due to the extraction procedure are minimal. The method is applicable t...

The “wire-loop slicing technique” for the rapid field collection of large numbers of Coptotermes acinaciformis termites from above-ground mound colonies
2006 - IRG/WP 06-10583
This technique of rapidly slicing through an above-ground C. acinaciformis mound colony with a steel wire-loop attached to a vehicle allows the collection of large numbers of termites. The sliced mound topples onto a tarpaulin arranged on the ground, the outer wall layers break away in large segments, and the carton materials incorporating the termites are readily collected and transferred to larg...
