Abstract/Contents:"Survivablility of Heterotermes aureus (Snyder) was tested under varying temperature and relative humidity regimes in laboratory incubators over seven day periods. Intitial tests showed that RH had a strong influence on H. aureus survival. Survival was significantly higher (P<.05) at 90% RH than 50% RH when held at a constant temperature of 29.4° C. Four temperatures were tested at a constant RH of 90%. Survival was highest at temperatures of 19.4° C (91.8%) and 21.1° C (97.3%). Survival was significantly lower for the higher ranger temperatures of 29.4° C (91.2%) and 32.2° C (69.2%)."
