AbstractWood-frame construction, the predominant building type for homes and small buildings in Canada, is prone to attack by various types of wood-destroying insects. The conditions that cause wood rot in buildings often encourage infestation. This note provides information to help owners and tenants of wood-frame buildings recognize and control termites and carpenter ants, which are the most destructive of these insects. Some recommendations on good building techniques are also included.
