Criteria for assessing efficacy of stand-alone termite bait treatments at structures

Criteria for assessing efficacy of stand-alone termite bait treatments at structures

Sociobiology 36(1): 245-255

Evaluation methods and criteria used to assess field efficacy of stand alone termite bait programs are described and compared. The four criteria examined are: (1) alate numbers; (2) activity on termiticidal baits; (3) monitors active prior to baiting; (4) post-treatment monitors (placed after termiticidal baiting). The justification, complexities and ambiguities, and interpretation of each criterion are discussed.
