Repellency of formosan subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) to dead termites and attraction to 2-phenoxyethanol with and without nonrepellent insecticides



Repellency of formosan subterranean termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) to dead termites and attraction to 2-phenoxyethanol with and without nonrepellent insecticides



Journal of Agricultural and Urban Entomology 23(3/4): 159-172



The response of the Formosan subterranean termite to both dead termites and 2-phenoxyethanol with and without nonrepellent insecticide residues was examined using three commercially available pesticide formulations (acetamiprid, fipronil, and imidacloprid). Results indicated that significantly more search tunnels were constructed in the 2-phenoxyethanol-treated sand with three different insecticides compared with the control sand on the first day.
