"White Ants" As Pests in the United States and Methods of Preventing Their Damage

Description: "Damage by white ants is serious to many classes of crude and finished forest products. These insects are especially injurious to foundation timbers and woodwork of buildings and to material stored therein. Damage to timber in contact with the ground is especially serious in the South. The woodwork of buildings can be protected from the attack of white ants by proper construction and these insects can be eliminated where already established." -- p. 2. This bulletin discusses the life cycle of these insects (also known as termites), the type of damage they cause, and methods for protecting wood and timbers.
