ABSTRACT
Billions of dollars are spent annually to replace the wood destroyed by decay fungi. Damage from these destructive fungi can occur even before signs of a problem are seen. Early detection is key to prolonging the service life of wood products. Researchers at Forests Products Laboratory have developed a one-step test to determine if decay fungi are present in wood. One can simply take a small sample of wood and soak it in the liquid provided in the test kit. When the liquid is applied to the test cassette, a color change occurs if decay fungi are present.
