Association of the eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae), with living trees in Canada



Association of the eastern subterranean termite, Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae), with living trees in Canada



Journal of Entomological Science 22(4): 353-354



The association of Reticulitermes flavipes with living trees was studied in Ontario in 1980. Of 17 800 street and park trees examined in Toronto, 4% had R. flavipes external shelter tubing on the bark. Termites were present on 19.3% of horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) trees inspected, 17.8% of silver maple (Acer saccharinum) and 13.7% of sugar maple (A. saccharum). No tubing was found on sycamore (Platanus occidentalis), spruce (Picea sp.) or pine (Pinus sp.).
