Field testing of nootkatone and tetrahydronootkatone wood treatments against Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki
2003 - IRG/WP 03-30308
A component of Alaskan yellow cedar, citrus oil, and vetiver oil, nootkatone, and its derivative, tetrahydronootkatone, were tested for their potential as wood treatments against Coptotermes formosanus. Wood treatments dipped in 1% and 5% nootkatone and tetrahydronootkatone in ethanol or vacuum impregnated (5% only) were tested in a natural setting using termite infested bald cypress trees along t...

The role of contact chemoreception in location of wood by the marine borer Limnoria (Isopoda)
1996 - IRG/WP 96-10157
This paper investigates the ability of Limnoria (Isopoda: Limnoriidae) to determine chemical differences in wood substrates, while in contact with the substrates. Test substrates were chosen on the basis of previous arguments concerning the chemical state of wood prior to Limnoria attack: microbial, ergosterol, metabolite, humic, extract and control (autoclaved) veneers were used as experimental s...

Facility for Conducting Field Tests on Coptotermes formosanus at LSU Agricultural Center
2003 - IRG/WP 03-20274
Efforts by Louisiana State University Agricultural Center (LSU AgCenter) and Mississippi State University (MSU) research scientists, to conduct cooperative research on C. formosanus and other wood-related topics, have led to establishing an FST field test site at the LSU Agricultural Center Citrus Research Experiment Station, Port Sulfur, Louisiana. A minimum of 32 termite colonies will be establi...

Wood detection by the marine isopod Limnoria.markup
1995 - IRG/WP 95-10134
The search for alternative control methods for Limnoria, should perhaps focus on the most vulnerable stage during the isopod life cycle - during dispersal when adulls leave their tunnels to find new wood. Dispersal is known to be triggered by environmental conditions, although how Limnoria locate fresh wood is unknown. Literature available on Limnoria dispersal, their sensory capabilities during d...

Feeding stimulants to enhance bait acceptance by Formosan termites
1994 - IRG/WP 94-10055
Four nitrogenous compounds were found to increase feeding by Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki in the laboratory. Cardboard disks dipped in urea solutions were consumed significantly more than untreated cardboard disks. Cardboard dipped in 8% urea showed a significant change in weight due to termite feeding over other urea treated cardboards. Examination of 15 amino acids in no choice feeding tests i...

Practical considerations of the Formosan subterranean termite in Louisiana: A 50-year-old problem
2000 - IRG/WP 00-10330
In an eleven-year censusing (1989 through 1999) in the French Quarter of New Orleans and surrounding areas, Coptotermes formosanus alate numbers were found to be increasing dramatically in all years but one. Moreover, in parks and neighborhoods in New Orleans and Lake Charles, LA, as well as in Sam Houston Jones State Park near Lake Charles surveyed in 1998, alarmingly high numbers of this exotic ...

Effects of two insect growth regulators (IRGs) on Microcerotermes diversus (Silvestri) (Isoptera: Termitidae) in Southwest Iran
2006 - IRGWP 06-10601
Microcerotermes diversus (Silvestri) is the most economically damaging termite species in structures in southwest, Iran. One safe control strategy that may reduce the subterranean termite damage in buildings is the use of IGRs in a suitable bait matrix. The effects of two juvenile hormone analogues, Admiral (Pyriproxyfen ) and Farox on M. diversus were evaluated over a range of concentrations ( 10...

Physical properties of Pinus radiata veneers modified with hexamethoxymethyl melamine prepolymers
2011 - IRG/WP 11-40551
Prepolymers containing hexamethoxymethyl melamine and either sucrose (Suc-HMMM) or polyvinyl alcohol (PVA-HMMM) were prepared by acid catalysis under reaction conditions optimised with respect to stiffening effect when introduced into Pinus radiata veneers by vacuum impregnation and cured by hot pressing at 150C. Maximum increases in MOE were 20% for Suc-HMMM (50% WPG), 22% for PVA-HMMM (...
