I am seeking advice on the treatment of drywood termites in the structure of
one of our historic library structures here at UF. We are aware that there are
termites in the window frames in one of our archival storage rooms. The entire
building holds special collections library and archival materials, reading
rooms, exhibition spaces, and other public areas.
We are investigating the extent of the infestation, as well as the approach
that our campus facilities group recommends. We know that on other campus
buildings, the approach is to tent and treat, but moving our collections is not
feasible, so any treatment must be done with collections in situ. As both
termites and (possible) building-wide treatment are new issues in my career, I
am interested in any guidance or resources that you can share.
