Efficiency of insecticides to control the mound-building termite, Cornitermes cumulans (Kollar) (Isoptera: Termitidae) in pastures areas


, : Efficiency of insecticides to control the mound-building termite, Cornitermes cumulans (Kollar) (Isoptera: Termitidae) in pastures areas. Anais da Sociedade Entomologica do Brasil 22(3): 521-525

Field tests were carried out to evaluated the efficiency of insecticides to control the mound-building termite, Cornitermes cumulans (Kollar) in pastures areas. Termite mound were selected, measured, identified, and drilled until the cellulosic chamber to allow insecticide application. Sixteen treatments with ten replications were tested and each termite mound considered as an experimental unit.
