    Abstract

    The U. S. Naval Civil Engineering Research and Evaluation Laboratory has been engaged in research on marine borers, the termites of the sea. The wood boring habits of these animals are responsible for millions of dollars of damage annually, and many methods have been employed in attempts to protect wooden harbor installations from them. The effectiveness of any of these wood preserving methods varies considerably from one geographical area to another. The most popular and probably the most successful treatment consists of impregnating the timbers under heat and pressure with coal-tar creosote.
