Resistance of borax-copper treated wood in aboveground exposure to attack by Formosan subterranean termites



Resistance of borax-copper treated wood in aboveground exposure to attack by Formosan subterranean termites



Research Note Forest Products Laboratory, USDA Forest Service (FPL-RN-0295): i + 4 pp.



The spread of Formosan subterranean termites (FSTs) in the southern United States has increased public interest in finding a preservative treatment to protect framing lumber from termite attack. This study evaluated the use of a borax-based preservative to protect wood from FST attack.
