Home About Our Lab

The University of Hawaii Termite Project is part of the Department of Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences in University of Hawaii's College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR). One of only a handful of laboratories like it in the entire nation, the UH Termite Project engages in world-class, ground-breaking research in the field of termites and other urban insect pests.

Under the direction of Dr. Ken Grace, the Termite Project continually investigates new technologies and techniques for the control of these subterranean pests. A broad spectrum of applications is studied, including wood treatments, soil treatments, baiting systems, non-chemical barriers, and resistivity of specific materials. Fundamental research in biology, behavior, and genetics completes the overall picture. For a more in-depth look at what goes on at the Termite Project, visit our research page.
