USDA-SRRC Demonstration of AED-2000 for Formosan Termite Detection

AEC recently demonstrated the AED-2000 and the new low frequency SP-1 probe designs to researchers at the USDA Southern Regional Research Center (SRRC) in New Orleans, LA. Dr. Alan Lax and Dr. Weste Osbrink are key members of USDA- SRRC staff heading a task force to control the Formosan termite infestation in the US. The New Orleans area is "ground zero" for this control effort. Up to 30% of the local trees, including many heritage oaks, are threatened by this voracious insect. We successfully demonstrated the sensitivity of our equipment for detection of termite infestations in trees and soil near the roots. See our "Applications" section for more complete information and examples of termite activity detected.
