A comparative study of the protection offered to wood samples by permethrin, dieldrin and lindane against damage by subterranean termites and fungi



A comparative study of the protection offered to wood samples by permethrin, dieldrin and lindane against damage by subterranean termites and fungi



International Journal of Wood Preservation 3(1): 31-38



Triplochiton scleroxylon and Pycnanthus angolensis wood blocks were treated with one of 6 formulations of permethrin, dieldrin or lindane by a double vacuum process. The T. scleroxylon samples were buried in soil in graveyard tests in Kumasi, Ghana and compared with untreated controls. The P. angolensis treated samples and untreated controls were sandwiched between glass plates and then exposed to termites in 'micro-tests'.
