And to all of special persons around us who inspired me and gave me the perseverance and determination in order to finish this work. -The Researcher A study was done on the reduction of termites utilizing Cashew Nutshell Liquid as its main material. The Cashew Nutshell Liquid was obtained by drying, then opening the Cashew Nutshells and heating then in moderate flame temperature. The extract was then tested with samples of termites. The amount of CNSL applied was controlled and so as the number of termites. The result of the testing is documented.
The feasibility of CNSL as anti-termite was compared to other commercial products. The qualities tested were: lasting effect of product, number of killed termites, resistance to termites, and overall acceptability. The samples had varied number of termites, and amounts of each quantity to determine the best proportion. The tests showed that the samples were generally inferior to commercial anti-termite products. CNSL has a great potential as an alternative anti-termite source. The researchers recommend further study on this project to obtain better, useful results.
