Investigations were conducted for developing alternative measures for the control of hodotermitid harvesters in the karroid areas of the Republic of South Africa, where the standard practice of spreading poisoned grass bait is uneconomic. In the limited areas of the Karoo where mounding occurs over the nest sites of M. viator it was established that adequate control at low cost may be obtained by injecting Aldinel directly into the nests.
