This publication studies three monitoring systems and efforts to eliminate termites at San Cristobal and El Morro of the San Juan National Historical Site in Puerto Rico. Populations of Coptotermes havilandi and Heterotermes sp. were detected and quantified using underground monitoring stations, aboveground monitoring stations and an acoustic emission detector reading.

This study tests hexaflumuron baits such as those used to eliminate termite populations in previous NCPTT-sponsored research on Liberty Island at the Statue of Liberty National Monument. This study evaluates these baiting systems over a much wider area.
