A PRESS RELEASE

TERMITE ATTACKS on BUILDINGS
A Practical Handbook.
Termites, popularly-but wrongly--
known as 'white ants', are perhaps
the biggest problem for facing owners
of buildings in many parts of Africa,
Asia and elsewhere. So far no concise
summary of existing information on
the prevention and control of infesta-
tion of buildings and building materials
has been available. "The Protection
of Buildings and Timber against
Termites" is a simple munual de-igned
te fill this gap, written for the praeti-
cal builder, architect, forest officer
and others concerned with the problem.
It has been deliberately planned to
stimulate interest in the habits of
Termites are useful scavengers in
their natural conditions, but man
takes away their food by clearing
forests and removing woody debris to
build towns. In doing this he substi-
tutes artificial food in the form of
building timber, furniture, books and
other edible material. The termite
has had to eat this or die and it has
become so successful at tapping this
source that many building repair jobs
amount merely to replenishing the
termite's food supply.
