Taming Termites

Posted: February 8, 2012 at 7:51 am

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Turns out, we're not the only ones enjoying this warm winter. Because we haven't seen much cold weather this year, entomologist John Cooksey with McCall Service, says termites think it's already spring. So already, they're starting to swarm.

“Typically, in a winter we'll have a few freezes that will knock insect populations down,” he said.

Cooksey says the little bugs pack a mean punch. Your house might be infested if you start to see:

– sawdust on the floor

– small holes in wood

– mud tubes

– damaged drywall

– or the tell tale sign, a termite swarm.

“You won't be able to miss it. They'll be on your window sills. They'll be around your door. It's a sure sign that you've got a problem,” he said.

Cooksey says when you see the swarms, the damage has been done. And often, your homeowners insurance policy won't cover the damage.

So, what do you do to keep the critters at bay? You can try to kill them yourself, but Cooksey wouldn't recommend it. He says your best bet is an in-ground pest control system, like Sentracon. That system will run you between $600 and $800, plus an annual maintenance fee.

Pest experts say homeowners should act on problem areas now

Posted: at 12:20 am

Warm winter and pests

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –

It's one of the consequences of an unseasonably warm winter this year. Experts say the warm weather is bringing more and more bugs into the area.

“We've already seen an increase in pest activity,” said George Richardson with Peninsular Pest Control. “We actually had termites swarming last Friday in great numbers.”

Richardson said the calls to his company have increased this year; he's already seen swarms of termites during a month when there should be very little activity. He said bugs like mole crickets and ants are also showing up more in the Jacksonville area.

“Many people think it kills the insects,” said Richardson. “[Cold weather] doesn't kill, it just slows down reproductive cycle. Causes slower activity as we see temps increase we see pest activity increase.”

Richardson recommends pest control for lawns and homes. If people already have problems, Richardson said they will probably get worse by spring.

“Anytime that you have pests, obviously you want to address the situation,” said Richardson. “It can be a danger to kids in the yard, our recommendation is to have a professional inspect them and treat them as needed.”

I’ve always been fascinated by mushrooms when out in the wild. I love to photograph them, as they can be really very beautiful and come in such an array of shapes, colours and sizes, from the large termitomyces schimperi which look like big white dinner plates, to the tiny spindly fungi that grow out of the ground like coral under the sea. 

We have an extraordinary diversity of fungi species in this country, in fact, an unknown number, for there are many here that have yet to be identified and named!

Ecologically, fungi are both fascinating and fundamentally important, playing a vital role in the carbon cycle.
Unlike plants, fungi have no chlorophyll, cannot photosynthesise and so have to get their food from other sources.

They produce spores, not seeds, to reproduce.  When fungi infect dead wood, plant debris and animal dung, they break cellulose and lignin down into simple sugars.

These sugars can then be taken up, not just by themselves, but by other nearby plants as well. 
There is a whole group of fungi called “termite fungi”, which have a symbiotic relationship with termites.
Some termite species actually cultivate these in their mounds in “termite gardens”.

These fungi break down the walls of these gardens, made of cellulose and lignin, making the resultant nutrients digestible by the worker termites.

Many fungi, known as mycorrhizal fungi, have similarly mutually beneficial relationships with trees and plants, helping them take up nitrogen, phosphates and other nutrients through their own network of tubular structures called hyphae which they put out underground in the soil, in turn developing into a kind of mat called a mycelium.

With the right conditions, in the rainy season, the mycelium will put out fruit — and this is the mushroom we see.

In return, the plant or tree supplies the fungus with sugars, made through its own photosynthesis in its leaves. 
Mychorrhizal fungi are very widespread and extremely important in the miombo woodlands that typify southern Africa.

 

As an example — if you’ve planted a msasa tree or a mountain acacia, in your suburban garden and you find it just never seems to thrive and grow, it could well be that the soil around it is missing the all-important fungi with which it has such a symbiotic relationship.

 

Some fungi can be used in medicine

 

If you go out into the bush, collect a small amount of soil from under a msasa or mountain acacia, bring it back and integrate it with the soil under your own tree. chances are, it will do rather better!

Without the presence of both fungi and termites, we would see an unending build-up of dead material, locked inside which, were so many valuable nutrients required to sustain the circle of life and balance of nature.

Some of the really tiny fungi, of course, can save lives. Since the discovery the fungus penicillium could kill bacteria, medicine has never been the same and our health and life expectancy have hugely benefitted from fungi that can be used medicinally to fight infections.  Some are even being researched for their potential to fight cancer.

While my lay-person’s interest in fungi has been a fascination with their appearance, their relationship with termites and trees and their photogenic qualities, for researcher Cathy Sharp, fungi are a life-long passion. 
This was a truly fascinating day.  Cathy’s enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge were infectious and the group who walked with her thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt much about fungi and their importance.

On whether or not a wild mushroom is edible, Cathy’s advice is very strict — “Just don’t go there!” Many a tragic fatality has come out of the misidentification of mushrooms, so it’s simply not worth taking a risk.

(OTCBB: ECOB.OB – News) announced today that the Company has started delivery of Eco Red Shield™ protected lumber to build the dream home of Gregory Artura and Patricia D'Alessio in Litchfield County, Connecticut. Having made the choice to utilize Eco Red Shield Lumber over one year ago the Atura's did not seem so concerned about breaking ground during the winter months.

ECOB is now delivering protected lumber on the east coast with the first homeowner to build with Eco's Red Shield Protection from mold, wood-rot, termites and fire. Recently several homes have burned in the Connecticut area; people no longer need to build with unprotected lumber now that Eco Red Shield lumber products are available in this market.  Interstate + Lakeland Lumber, ECOB 's local affiliate, is gearing up to supply Eco Red Shield for the upcoming spring run.

Leveraging the existing lumber supply chain, from Salem Oregon across the country to the Tri State area and Southern California across to Texas, New Orleans and onto Florida the Company set out in 2011 to connect the west coast to the east coast insuring Eco Red Shield products are now available and affordable in all markets.

Today a local Fox news reporter called Steve Conboy asking to do an interview on the Company as he spotted our sign on a Fieldstone Homes job site that said, “Ask me why I'm Red”. This news focus can be viewed at http://youtu.be/VuYc0KsCBIg  “ECOB now has jobs popping up all over the USA and the phones are starting to ring with lumber wholesalers wanting Eco Red Shield lumber,” stated Steve Conboy, President and CEO of Eco Building Products. “I'm glad we stuck to my plan of creating infrastructure instead of selling products before we were ready to handle volume operationally,” added Conboy.
