Results of the survey have been made on the basis of most important destructive termite species in various parts of the city, classification of damage in different structures, and counter measures adopted against termite infestation.Feeding activity of Heterotermes indicola (Wasmann) was also observed against commercial timbers of Pakistan under Laboratory conditions in Modified Wood Block Test. Foraging activity and territory of Coptotermes heimi (Wasmann) in Jallo Forest Park, Lahore were studied by a mark release recapture method.Moreover present study also deals with the termiticidal performance of treated wood after exposure to soil burial under laboratory conditions.Degradation of chemicals and changes to termiticidal effectiveness has been discussed.
