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.
