It has been identified the extent of damage due to the activity of Captotermes sp, Microtermis sp, Formica sp, Araneus sp and Stegonium sp on books in the USU Library. Furthermore, prevention of dominant pest attack on the book containing cellulose as the main food of termites, termites control (action term) control by Action Research method (action research, Kurt Lewin adoption) is done intensively from July to September 2017. used are of neem leaf (Azadirachta indica), tobacco leaf (Nicotiana tabacum), rubber cassava leaf (Manihot glaziovii), and betel nut (Areca catechu) which can be used as Termite Baiting System (TBS). This method includes three stages, in the form of planning (planning), activity and reflection (actuating and reflexion) and evaluation (evaluation). The results show the higher number of termites in F1799.3 = 0.328* with zero days after application. Based on the research recorded in sampling for 3 months with 4 treatments had a significant effect on the percentage of the number of termites that died and collected with the value of F is 86.27, p ˂ 0,000 and the percentage of death is F = 59.13 (p ˂ 0,000). Pearson correlation value recorded percentage of termite mortality (r = 0.349 **) and percentage of book affected (r = -0,597**) showed a very significant relationship. Pinet pellet is the best attractant in controlling termite pests, followed by tobacco plants, poisonous yams, and neem. Optimal FFB techniques in its use can control termite colonies in an environmentally friendly manner.
