dc.description.abstract Redwood and cedar were the most resistant or least preferred woods of the 6 wood species fed to the Formosan subterranean termite. Significantly more Ponderosa pine, spruce, hemlock and Douglas fir were consumed than redwood or cedar. There were no statistically significant differences in consumption between redwood and cedar and no significant differences in the amounts of the other 4 wood species consumed. Both redwood and cedar apparently were not completely suitable food for the termites. 100% of the termites fed redwood died within 3 weeks and approximately 50% of those fed cedar died in the same period. en_US
