Termite Biology and Termidor Interactions presented by Dr. Jason Meyers of BASF. Occasionally termites throw us for a loop. They complicate situations by showing up in places we didn’t expect. They become difficult to control when we have a multitude of different construction types. We need to be prepared to use all tools in our toolbox. This session will explore the use of both liquid and bait for termite control - and discuss the termite behavior and social system, colony research, and the equipment and products available.basf logobw
