About the Practice

To control white ants, Madhavbhai Bhopabhai Solanki directly applies his herbal remedy to the groundnut crop. He sprays the beneficial castor oil cake in the field and its effect against termites remains for one year. A spray of diluted lemon juice will have its effect for a forenight. A spray of kerosene will have its effect for a fortnight. These act directly on termites but need to be applied again and again. These can be supplemented with chemical pesticides for effective termite control.
