Wood-Destroying Pest Management – Part 1, 2, and 3

Course Description

Termites are just one of the many wood-destroying pests found throughout the United States. Carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, and wood-damaging fungi can also cause severe structural damage if not properly managed. Often times the initial cause of any pest problem is the presence of excess moisture in the structural wood. The source of the excess moisture must be addressed for a permanent solution to the pest problem to be effective. This course will cover the primary wood-destroying pests found through the country, the recommended treatments for each of those pests, and the primary sources of excess structural moisture.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Explain the different laws that govern pesticide applications
  • Describe termite biology, caste system, and physical characteristics
  • Identify other wood-destroying insects such as carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, and carpenter bees
  • Explain the different types of termite treatments
  • Describe the different types of wood-damaging fungi and outline standard treatment procedures
  • Identify common sources of excess moisture within a structure

Termite Inspection and Treatment

Course Description

Inspecting and treating for termites can be a difficult process. Being familiar with common types of construction is extremely helpful. The following course is a tour of the Mississippi State University Extension termite training facility. The facility consists of 12 different stations, each representing an area of a building or home where termites could enter the structure. The regulations referenced by the presenters are Mississippi regulations for termite treatments. It is the responsibility of the applicator to be familiar with the rules and regulations regarding termite treatment and all pesticide applications for their state.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Identify key areas to inspect for termite damage or entry
  • Identify common treatment failure points at each station
  • Discuss treatment strategies for each station

IPM for Termite Prevention

Course Description

Termites are one of the most destructive pests in the United States. They are responsible for more than 2 million dollars in damage each year. In many states, building codes require the use of liquid termiticide when constructing new structures. But there are several common-sense IPM practices that can be implemented to make a structure less inviting to termites from the start. This course will provide a review of IPM principles, termite biology, and several solid IPM practices to make any structure less attractive to termites.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Explain the principles of Integrated Pest Management and how they apply to termite prevention.
  • Describe the life cycle of a termite and be familiar with termite behavior.
  • Recommend several IPM practices that can reduce the risk of a structure being invaded by termites.
