Florida Entomologist 83 (1), 92-93
Abstract: A well-established infestation of the western drywood termite, Incisitermes minor (Hagen) (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae), was discovered in Louis Armstrong Park in New Orleans, Louisiana. Colonies are present inside historical Perseverance Hall and in a dead limb of a nearby live Arizona ash tree. This is the first report of this species in Louisiana and the first report of a non-endemic drywood termite species infesting
non-structural wood.
