  1. Resource Description
    "An environmentally acceptable barrier against subterranean termites has been developed and is now available for use. The barrier is formed by placing a four inch layer of a granular material between the building and the ground. A minimum of 60% of the granules in the barrier must have at least one dimension measuring between 1.7 to 2.4 millimeters. The granules should be very hard and dense. Granules with these characteristics form a barrier which the termites cannot move, cannot chew through and cannot penetrate. The granules, in Hawai’i, are currently being manufactured from basalt (BTB). Basalt has almost ideal characteristics for this type of use."
