The first edition of this popular, practical and jargon-free manual was the first book to explain the habits of Australian termites and other common timber pests, borers and ants, identify the more frequently encountered species, and describe the control methods available for pest species. This revised edition incorporates the recent major changes to the Australian Standards which provide guidelines for the prevention and control of termites. Standard AS 3660-1 (1995) replaces three previously used Standards. A major feature of the book is the detailed illustration of major species of termites. To aid identification, unique features of particular species have been highlighted and described. As not all species are pests, the author does not advocate the destruction of non-pest varieties. While it is scientifically based and the result of years of research and fieldwork, Australian Termites is a clear and concise guide for all who need to understand how to protect buildings from termite attack: pest controllers, landscapers, horticulturalists, builders and architects.
