PESTICIDE PLANTS FOR TERMITES

It has been researched on and
tried at UP Los Baños College of Forestry that we have plants
that can control termites. The most effective of these are the
Balanoi and dilaw leaves. They contain methanol, which, when
extracted and dissolved in water, can control
termites.

Next to the above are the
leaves of the Adelpha and kakawate, and weakest among those
tried was the juice of the makabuhay.

The were tried on a sibukaw log
that was exposed to termites for two weeks. When the extracts
of the mentioned plants were sprayed on the log, no termites
touched it.
