For tackling the termites the Forest Service’s Southern Research Station (SRS) Termite Team and Durability and Wood protection has merged together at the Forest products Laboratory (FPL).
Rebecca Wallace said that this development will make a positive impact on the forest products industry and the pest management industry.
FPL has conducted termite research on control and suppression via baiting systems and termiticide development for decades, while the SRS termite team has a long history of evaluating termiticides and barrier systems for federal and state registration. The reorganized Research Work Unit (RWU) recognizes the potential of the combined expertise of the termite program to impact the structural pest management industry and make a difference in the lives of every homeowner.
