Bottom Line: The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures 15 (ISPM 15) [1] that is adopted in wood packaging protection in Europe is not suitable for tropical countries like Indonesia.The bioassay test was subjected to dry wood termite Cryptotermes cynocephalus Light.The result showed that wood materials treated by 10 ppm Organo-Complex formula gave good results which were indicated by the low consumption and the fast termination of the termites.

ABSTRACT
The utilization of pesticides often leaves residues which potentially pollute the environment. This journal issue has been encouraging some researchers to find an environmentally friendly insecticide by a cheaper wood preservative method. The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures 15 (ISPM 15) [1] that is adopted in wood packaging protection in Europe is not suitable for tropical countries like Indonesia. Therefore, the treatment by Organo-Complex-based wood preservation, which consists of copper chromium combined with natural organic compounds, is proposed for effective treatment at a lower cost. The bioassay test was subjected to dry wood termite Cryptotermes cynocephalus Light. The result showed that wood materials treated by 10 ppm Organo-Complex formula gave good results which were indicated by the low consumption and the fast termination of the termites. The toxicity analysis of C-C organic compound solution is classified as grade IV (WHO, 2003) [2], or not harmful. Analysis of the residual content four weeks after the spraying treatment showed a significant reduction in the inorganic content (copper chromate complex), in the range of 35%, and in extracts of natural materials (natural extracts), above 80%.

f2-insects-02-00491: Termite mortality rate of essential oil evaluated.

Mentions: The results of the bioassay test of C-C organic compound solution are presented in Table 2 and Figure 2. In this study, rubber wood (Hevea brasiliensis) with less durability was used as control. There were significant differences in weight loss percentage between the untreated wood and the control. The average value of untreated wood weight loss was 8.6%, showing low resistance against dry wood termite. Meanwhile, wood treated with the C-C organic compound solution showed high resistance against dry wood termite with an average value of 1.4%. It can be concluded that C-C organic compound solution can be classified as Grade I or high resistant against the dry-wood termite C. cynocephalus Light.
