Abstract:The compounds 8-hydroxyquinoline and various derivatives, 1-naphthol and various derivatives, and mixtures of these compounds showed no insecticidal properties upon contact with termites. Repellency was tested and results differed between some laboratory and field conditions. Mixtures of hydroxyquinoline compounds with naphthol compounds were most intensely and consistently repellent to termites even in low concentrations (<100 ppm).
