The efficacy of injecting and liquid termiticide and covering the treatment area with cotton cloth saturated with insecticide for 48 hours was conducted in 2 areas of Tan Da Resort (central Area and Lac Viet area) that were damaged by drywood termite. The results showed that the drywood termite Cryptotermes domesticus was completely eliminated 5 days after the injection and covering treatment and there have been no signs of termite activity for 3 months.
