Abstract
A trial was carried out over a period of 'seventeen months in termite infested land at the Agricultural Research Station, Kawanda. A susceptible local timber was completely protected by all of ten formulations of D.D.T. and B.H.C., while out of eight untreated slabs six were more than half eaten, and only one remained undamaged. Boundary posts treated with creosote were also damaged.
