Call For Termites!

Dear Homeowners and Pest Controllers,

Re: Subterranean Termites - Appeal for Samples

We are studying the genetics of invasive termites in Canada, and we need to collect 1000s of termites from across Canada and the United States.

We are especially interested in subterranean termites from our own province of Ontario, where one invasive species, Reticulitermes flavipes, forms large colonies that destroy homes. But, samples from everywhere are important.

Join our study!

Here's how it works. If you have termites on your property and/or you are able to obtain samples:
1- Register HERE!
2- We'll send you a collection vial with instructions
3- You mail it back to us. That's it!

Thanks for your help!
