Abstract

Kalotermes approximatus (Snyder) habitat was studied in South Carolina. This species was found in live and dead, standing, hardwood trees. Height and girth of infested trees were variable with a mean (±SD) of 11.51 ± 7.41 m and 72.60 ± 41.41 cm, respectively. Moisture content was the only measured parameter that was predictable at 23.74 ± 5.05%. Ten of the 19 (52.6%) trees infested with K. approximatus had tree holes. Tree holes were on the southwest, south, southeast, or east side of the tree. Kalotermes approximatus is not a common species in South Carolina. Approximately 1200 trees having characteristics similar to the 19 infested trees were inspected without positive results. /// El hábitat de Kalotermes approximatus (Snyder) fue estudiado en Carolina del Sur. Esta especie fue encontrada en árboles verticales, de madera dura, vivos y muertos. La altura y circunferencia de árboles infestados fueron variables con un promedio ±DS de 11.51 ± 7.41m y 72.60 ± 41.41 cm, respectivamente. El contenido de humedad fue el único parámetro medido que fue consistente a 23.74 ± 5.05%. Diez de los 19 árboles infestados con K. approximatus tenían huecos de árbol. Huecos de árbol estaban al suroeste, sur, sureste, o lado este del árbol. Kalotermes approximatus no es una especie común en Carolina del Sur. Aproximadamente 1200 árboles con características similares a los árboles infestados fueron inspeccionados sin obtener resultados positivos.
