NEW ORLEANS - On April 7, BASF Pest Control Solutions launched the “Termite House Party” exhibit at the Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans.

Silently and secretly, termites do more damage to American homes every year than fire, floods and all other natural disasters combined. In fact, termites infest an estimated 1.5 million U.S. homes each year. Now, people can watch these tiny home wreckers in action and up close at www.termiteinstitute.com. Watch thousands of hungry, wood-eating termites as they consume a miniature house in a new exhibit at the Audubon Insectarium. The “Termite House Party” exhibit, sponsored by BASF Termidor termiticide/insecticide, is aimed at educating people about these highly organized and determined insects.
