    Description

    Baiting techniques have been developed over the years to control Coptotermes species, the most economically important termite species in Australia. Given the restrictions on organochlorines as termiticides in North America, this paper highlights research that has focussed on baiting programs against Coptotermes as alternatives to current control measures: drenching soil with pesticides or fumigation of entire structures. Details of the baiting procedures, toxins used, and their suitability for use in eradicating Coptotermes infestations in existing buildings are described. Suggestions are offered for the direction in which future baiting techniques may prove productive.
