Virus-like symptoms in a termite (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae) field colony
Florida Entomologist 96 (4), 1612-1614
Abstract: The concept behind the use of biological control agents against termites was based on the assumption that epizootic events can occur naturally in a termite colony. However, no reports ever mentioned the occurrence of epizootic in natural field conditions in any termite species. We here describe what could be the first report of a viral epizootic in a field colony of Neotermes jouteli.
