Animals bring misfortune - Termites
Termites, about more than 3000 kinds of Isoptera collectively, apart from known flood ant (because usually appear before the rain, hence the name), you can often find traces of them in tropical and subtropical regions, early in the Earth survived 200 million 50 million years ago. Termites are a member of Arthropoda Insecta below, formerly Isoptera, now has relegated become the next head Blattodea Isoptera below, incomplete metamorphosis gradual metamorphosis class and are social insects, termites each Individual termites nests up one million. In German, termites also known as "Unglückshafte", meaning "with misfortune animal" or "animals bring misfortune."
What is the termiteit?
Termites and ants, what is different? The so-called red termites and other insect is, the body is soft, cylindrical spherical head, chewing mouthparts, shape and ants similar, but belong to different projects. 4 per year - in June when the rainy season begins, long red adults would rush out, especially outdoor lights, always missed their presence, even on screens at home, are not difficult to find their figure, and such a situation always occurs before and after the heavy rain, so older people also call them - flood ants.
Termite - flood ants
As the name suggests, they like moist and warm environment, it is usually a gathering place for the house of termites occurs more space for the more humid bathroom, kitchen, and termites are into the house from where it? Typically most people misunderstand termites after the family into the house of wood building materials, it is not true, termites into the house through the main channel is adjacent garden or trees, etc. may be suitable for the survival of local termites transferred to house outdoors Termites can decompose dead wood, so smooth in the soil seed implantation, it is beneficial insects. But into the house of termites, but it is the destruction of the home of a large culprit, termites staple fiber-rich foods, because termites have native abdominal flagellate symbiotic relationship, so that termites can quickly digest wood fibers, so termites destroy home decorating wooden relevant speed, not an ordinary person can imagine, and the other, in addition to the wooden décor termites and wood products, resulting in a strong sign of damage dimension, but is not itself produce methane gas. According to US experts study reported that, when huge termites population, and in a confined or poorly ventilated buildings, the air contained in the methane gas concentration will be relatively increase, under the circumstances of prolonged contact or inhalation, could the human respiratory tract or visual impact. So when termites were in our own, it is recommended that you must deal with as quickly as possible, so as not to cause harm to the body and the house.
In addition to the impact of termites have home life, there are two other creatures, also worries of home life, one mouse, two cockroaches, these two creatures will not have home buildings produce irreversible damage, but on the home environment cause considerable problems, rats are highly adaptable habitat for a variety of environment, buildings, warehouses, and other secluded places can be ... able to survive. The main activity at night, with animals and plants for food, are omnivorous. Since norvegicus diet and similar to humans, it can adapt to human life, we can breed throughout the year, which is often chewed home building and home equipment, and even eating food, is an important medium for rodent diseases, so become a major pest. Cockroaches, with millions of years of evolution is a history of omnivorous insects, humans have a strong home life intrusive, fecundity and survival super power, a German cockroach, nearly one hundred thousand a year can be the breeding offspring , while US light water cockroach can live a month, even if the head is removed cockroach, still it can be active for a long time to one week. Cockroaches become home life worries, mainly because cockroaches are many pathogens communicators, especially home cockroach, the body with a lot of germs, but also filial asthma allergens disease and other allergic reactions.
And now we will be your home safe for you to check, let termites no longer cause your home security worries, no longer have to worry about termites on wood interiors feel deterred, but no longer have to worry about the home environment, we are assured to deal with, eliminate home pests, the eradication of bacteria, to help you solve the main cause of allergens so you can have peace of mind a comfortable home life.
許多民眾認為，裝潢如使用檜木材料，將可有效避免白蟻啃咬 ? 其實不然！ 因為老一輩的人普遍通稱之台灣檜木，為日據時代日本人砍伐為數最多，由台灣所產出種，因質地堅硬及所含油質量較高，並具有濃濃氣味對昆蟲產生忌避作用，的確可有效防蟲，是被全世界公認材質最佳的檜木種。
Staple fiber foods termites
There is the small intestine within ─ flagellate protozoan symbiosis with the rules, in order to digest the rapid tough lignocellulosic; termites can quickly biting wood and paper help because; so the speed termites at home when decorating wood, not most people can imagine, people often cause severe property loss, termites also not entirely pests; in the forest, dead trees and down by termites need to break down, can the successful implantation of the seeds in the soil.
Many people believe that the decoration materials such as the use of cypress, which can effectively prevent termites will bite? It is not true! Because older people are generally known in Taiwan cypress wood, the Japanese occupation era largest number of Japanese cut, Taiwan and the output from the seed, and the hard texture due to high oil quality, and have produced a thick smell of insect repellent effect, indeed effective pest control, is the best material cypress wood species recognized around the world.
But Taiwan cypress logging has been restricted, and now the annual output of more legitimate as of fallen wood, dead trees treatment, or old material handling currently engaged in emerging industries, production is extremely limited. Building materials on the market or bath tub products cause, false cypress is quite a lot in Taiwan. The current actual transactions cypress market, mostly from Taiwan are imported from other countries in North America, mainly due to the development of world trade, production is not limited, price is much cheaper than in Taiwan cypress reasons. But imports of cypress wood to, and no good came as Taiwan cypress, nor strong fragrant smell, of course, anti-termite effect is relatively much worse.
Even Taiwan cypress itself with oil, the smell will be affected by time, temperature, humidity, sun, rain and slowly decline, pest control effect will slowly lose in one or two decades later. Especially in the many monuments, Japanese-style building materials, the use of Taiwan cypress wood is termites bite off everywhere, this is the best proof.
In addition to the wooden décor and wooden sign-dimensional product damage caused by a strong external, itself still will produce methane gas, according to US experts study reported that, especially when a large ethnic groups, and that a closed or poorly ventilated premises, the air methane-containing gas concentration will be relatively improved in the long-term exposure or inhalation of the circumstances that may or vision for the human impact of the respiratory tract. So when termites were in our own, it is recommended that you must deal with as quickly as possible, so as not to cause harm to the body.
Termites benefits and harm
Benefits: Termites are the bottom of the food chain, they can be decomposed rotten wood, is one of the few animals decomposed lignin, cellulose into nutrients returned to the soil, among the important part of the ecological cycle. The termites can break down cellulose because by symbiotic flagellates in their intestines, secretes enzymes for digesting cellulose, lignocellulose glycolysis to glucose.
Harm: wooden articles often suffer from termites, so easy to collapse buildings, railway sleepers reduce life expectancy, and therefore generally considered a major pest.
