Subject: strawbale Kenya

Can anyone help Bill?


ECOLIFE has funding to build a girls dormitory in Samburu Kenya.  We
want to use the roof for rainwater collection.  We would also like to
use strawbale construction.  There are straw bale structures in South
Africa and in Zambia but no one answers any correspondance.  I am
curious if we will have problems with termites - I know the USA answers
but do not know about the different species in Kenya and what the risk
might be.  Would you by any chance know anything about this?

allow us to develop a clean water program for schools in Kenya and
water-related outreach programs in California.
The ECO-LIFE Foundation is a 501c3 organization dedicated to providing
water, food and shelter in biologically sustainable ways.

G ' day David

I will be in Kenya in 13 days time looking at straw bale for Kisumu as
well as climbing Kilimanjaro for the orphans.  I will look into it for
you however I expect that the termites will not eat straw in Kenya.  I
was there for 20 odd years and worked on a mixed farm for 12 months we
baled straw, wheat and never did I see any termites in the stacks.

All for now.
