Susceptibility of compressed bagasse fiber to termite attack



Susceptibility of compressed bagasse fiber to termite attack



Forest Products Journal 46(9): 76-78



Compressed agricultural fibre panels have the potential to be useful building materials, particularly in situations where wood is scarce or expensive. Bagasse, or sugarcane rind, is an agricultural byproduct that is suitable for use in such panels. However, in laboratory tests, Formosan subterranean termites (Coptotermes formosanus) survived as well on bagasse as on Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) wood.
