North Carolina's Formosan Termite Program

Tree Injection Treatments - September 2004

Based on the the results of the field and light trap surveys, the second part of the control program involving treatment infested trees was conducted on September 27, 2004. Originally four trees were to be treated but in the course of further inspection, two more infested trees were found and subsequently treated.
