Distribution of the termite genus Coptotermes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in Florida
Florida Entomologist 88 (2), 201-203
Abstract: Confirmed Florida localities of the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosanus, and the Asian subterranean termite, C. gestroi, are reported. Coptotermes formosanus has been collected from 20 counties and 40 cities in Florida, while C. gestroi has been collected in 4 counties and 8 cities. Dispersal of both Coptotermes species have been facilitated by shipboard infestations and land-based commodities.
