MANHATTAN, Kan. — Swarms of termites have infested Kansas State University's Waters Hall, interfering with the work being done in the historic building, which houses the Entomology Department, WIBW reports.

"For the last two years, they’ve had six termite swarms in this building. It’s high termite pressure. The termite situation has been going on here, they’ve told us, for more than 100 years," said Travis Aggson, entomologist and Vice President of American Pest Management.

K-State has turned to American Pest Management and Dow AgroSciences to install the Sentricon system to eliminate the problem.
