Abstract:Wood devices were placed on roof surfaces of multi-storied buildings to monitor establishment of aerial infestations by alates of the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, in urban southeastern Florida during one swarming season. A total of 80 alate visits was recorded from 20 devices, with nine pairs successfully establishing copulatoria.
