Infestation rates of building construction materials by subterranean termites (Reticulitermes flavipes) were evaluated. Additionally, consumption rates of infested cellulose building construction materials, as well as, damage to non-cellulose building construction materials were examined, in a no choice test. Moisture content of the building construction products and termite survivorship were also measured.
