Management and cultural practices

  1. Plow field to destroy the termites' nest, runways, and tunnels and to expose them to predators, such as ants, birds, chicken, etc.
  2. Practice crop rotation to reduce the buildup of termites. Planting the same crop every cropping season makes it susceptible to a termite attack.
  3. Know and make a list of the annual crops that are attack by termites. Practice intercropping to lessen the termites' damage to their favored plants.
