      A. rats & mice

    • B.

      B. cockroaches

    • C.

      C. termites

    • D.

      D. none of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. B. cockroaches
    Explanation
    Cockroaches lay an egg capsule called "ootheca". This capsule contains multiple eggs and is usually dropped or glued to a surface, providing protection and nourishment for the developing eggs. The ootheca acts as a protective covering, preventing the eggs from desiccation and predators. Cockroaches are known for their rapid reproduction, and the presence of ootheca is a sign of a potential infestation.

    7. What is the common wood boring pest to infest wooden structures?

    • A.

      A. drywood termites

    • B.

      B. rats

    • C.

      C. wood worms

    • D.

      D. cricket

    Correct Answer
    A. A. drywood termites
    Explanation
    Drywood termites are a common wood boring pest that infest wooden structures. Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites do not require contact with soil and can infest dry wood directly. They create tunnels and chambers within the wood, causing extensive damage over time. Drywood termites are known for their ability to survive in dry conditions and can infest furniture, flooring, and other wooden objects. Their presence is often identified by the presence of fecal pellets, which are small, hexagonal-shaped pellets that they push out of their tunnels.

    8. On termite baiting systems, what do you call the implements used and installed around and within a given property?

    • A.

      A. above ground & inground interceptors

    • B.

      B. fogging & misting machine

    • C.

      C. sprayer & injector

    • D.

      D. none of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A. above ground & inground interceptors
    Explanation
    Termite baiting systems typically use above ground and inground interceptors. These are implements that are installed both around and within a property to intercept and trap termites. Above ground interceptors are placed on top of the ground, while inground interceptors are buried in the soil. These interceptors are designed to attract termites and prevent them from reaching the property, effectively controlling termite infestations.

    Explanation
    Termite baiting procedures originated in Australia. This country has been at the forefront of developing and implementing effective methods to control termite infestations using baiting techniques. The unique ecosystem and prevalence of termites in Australia have led to extensive research and innovation in this field. Australian scientists and pest control professionals have developed specialized baits and monitoring systems that have proven to be successful in managing termite populations. As a result, Australia has become a global leader in termite control and their baiting procedures have been adopted and implemented in various parts of the world.

These mounds can reach heights of several meters and are made from a mixture of soil, saliva, and termite excrement. The mounds serve as a complex system of ventilation and temperature regulation for the termite colony.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. drywood termites
    Explanation
    Drywood termites cause pellet-like droppings and are considered a nuisance pest. These termites infest dry wood and create small, hard fecal pellets that they push out of their tunnels. These pellets can accumulate over time and indicate an active infestation. Unlike dampwood and subterranean termites, drywood termites do not require contact with soil or water sources to survive. They can cause significant damage to wooden structures and furniture if left untreated.

      D. pyrophobic

    Correct Answer
    B. B. neophobic
    Explanation
    Neophobia refers to the fear or aversion towards new or unfamiliar things. In this context, the fear of rats on things new to someone is an example of neophobia. This suggests that the person has a fear or aversion towards rats when they encounter them on objects or situations that they are not familiar with. Claustrophobia is the fear of confined spaces, acrophobia is the fear of heights, and pyrophobia is the fear of fire, none of which are directly related to the fear of rats on new things.
