  • Patent number: 6362224
    Abstract: An improved termiticidal combination is formed by adding a liquid cellulose source to a standard liquid termiticide. The cellulose source may be a water soluble polyester such as a cellulose ether like methyl cellulose. The cellulose in the combination functions as termite bait, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the poison, even at lower concentrations, by inducing termites to ingest poisoned cellulose and return with it to share it with the colony. The liquid form allows the combination to be applied with a standard power sprayer, and permits laying of a continuous barrier or curtain as well as injection spraying into walls of structures.
