National Formosan Subterranean Termite Program

Termite Image Library


Image Number K8085-9

Live trees are attacked as well as buildings. The Formosan subterranean termite is known to infest over 50 species of live plants. Thirty percent of the historically important live oak trees in the New Orleans area are infested. Trees serve as a source of termites which can subsequently invade nearby homes. Research is underway to determine the most effective manner of treating live trees.
