Wooden timbers are honeycombed, leaving only a thin outside ;,hcll. 1 Termites travel directly from the ground into the wood, steering clear of llfiht and air. by building tube-like dirt lunnels to cross concrete or other obstructions. These runways protect termites from the drying elfccl of air. anrt always indicate their presence. When contact with Ihe molsl earth Is broken, the termites In building will soon die. 'J'o t^o'ck them, a copper sheet, bent rtown- wflrd at nn angle'of 45 degrees, can be Inserted beneath Ihe sill where the tunnels are found. Wood In contact with the ground should be replaced with concrete, or the cnrth can be excavated and Ihe wood protected with a tight coating of concr.cte or sheet metal. It's good prevention to clear the TIRMITE COLONY ground near the building of all wood refuse. Trellises, arbors, and other wood .structures placed on the foundation Invile termites. When reconstruction Isn't possible, buildings can be protected for considerable periods by poisoning the surrounding ground wilh oiihodlchlorucnzene. or a fuel oil spray containing five per cent DDT. This Is used at the rate of one gallon to 10 running leel in trenches 2 to 3 inches deep, close to the MCISTUKC outside foundation walls, and alon the inside as well when the spuci within is not excavated or Is un finished. As Ihe existence of clay tunnel indicates the location of nests h Ihe ground, a hole should b« du at tlie base, and Ihe nest de stroyed by poisoning. Year round vigilance and con slant checking is the surest way preventing termite damage. ny Kamp «ur* favori ovir Family'* Recipcl Thi« is him ItsTastiness will tickle you PINK!
