Tuesday, October 30, Coptotermes curvignathus Coptotermes curvignathus quite closely resembles Coptotermes gestrio but is larger. Planting sites originating from coptotermes curvignathus cleared of peat swamps pose a high risk of attack.


Planting sites derived from logged over lowland dipterocarp forest pose a moderate risk, whereas sites derived from secondary vegetation dominated by bushes and small trees or grassland pose a lesser threat.

Tree species that are coptotermes curvignathus susceptible, such as pines, are best planted on sites that pose a low risk, whereas sites that pose a high risk are best planted with resistant tree species. Biological Control The use of entomophagous nematodes and entomopathogenic fungi to control species of Coptotermes has been largely experimental and laboratory-based, and most of the work has focussed on C.

The histopathology of infection by entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae in C. Chemical Control Chemical control is the most commonly practised method of control for C.

Three general methods exist, that is the use of termiticides, coptotermes curvignathus synthesis inhibitors and fumigants. Termiticides Termiticides are insecticides formulated for use against termites.

Rubber termite (Coptotermes curvignathus)

Among the insecticides used for this purpose are chlorpyrifos, cypermethrin, alpha-cypermethrin and new generation insecticides such as fipronil and imidacloprid.

Termiticides are usually applied to the soil to form a chemical barrier that protects coptotermes curvignathus tree against termite attack.

These chemicals last for several months to a few years depending on the characteristics of the chemical, coptotermes curvignathus concentration used and the site conditions. Chlorpyrifos, for example, has been shown to give at least 4 years protection to Gmelina arborea grown in Sabah Chey, b.

The chemicals may be applied as a granular formulation or in liquid form, diluted in water. Data analysis was based on sinusoidal equation coptotermes curvignathus.
