Termite Attack (1990)

By June 1st, 1990

Controlling the attack on buildings by termites without resorting to the extensive use of chemical sprays is a major objective of CSIRO’s Dr John French.

One method he has developed used specially impregnated blocks which act as ‘lures’ but leave no residues in the building. In another approach he uses a gravel barrier of a certain particle size which the termites can’t penetrate.
