  Abstract  
  Prevention of termite attack is preferable to remedial control. This can be accomplished through good architectural design, use of termite-resistant building materials, installation of physical or chemical barriers to prevent subterranean termite penetration, and possibly also installation of termite bait/monitoring stations. We review current developments and trends in each of these areas contributing to the construction of termite resistant buildings, particularly with respect to control of the Formosan subterranean termite.
