Learning Objectives

Learning Objective 1:

Identify the Formosan termite and recognize how this pest destroys wood structures throughout much of the southeast US resulting in $5 billion damage annually.

Learning Objective 2:

Recognize the extensive entomology research on the behaviors of Formosan termites and the hot/wet regions in which they thrive.

Learning Objective 3:

Understand how the termite can ultimately affect the health, safety, and welfare of the building occupants including the need for dangerous pesticide treatments throughout the life of the structure.

Learning Objective 4:

Identify how pre-construction planning, waterproofing, and physical barriers prevent termite intrusion and damage in the future.

Learning Objective 5:

Recognize local and state building codes relative to termite physical barriers, understand proper installation, and recognize how these products qualify for LEED certification.

Protecting the Built Environment from Formosan Termites

FREE

Many architects, engineers, and builders don’t consider the threat of Formosan termites. They therefore leave the building owner and future occupants with the ongoing task of using chemical pesticides and/or repairing significant damage.   Do you build in the termite zone? Domestic subterranean termites exist throughout the mainland.  Now much of the United States is susceptible to Formosan termite infestation, which has been expanding since 1975. Any new build within this termite zone should incorporate the steps to provide long-term protection against Formosan and native American subterranean termites.   This course will describe the Formosan termite and the damage it can cause. We’ll review the preventative but long-term processes that many building owners take to prevent infestation. Most importantly, this course will outline the standard and enhanced processes, implemented at building construction, that protect the structure.
