One of the most serious problem in the the bamboo is the  insects attacked.  Bamboo is susceptible material  to the insect attacked, since then it  should be treated appropriately. The ancient society prevent the insect problem by cutting bamboo at the appropriate season. This method is proved to be very effective, the traditional houses of bamboo can last up to many years without any insect attacked. But at this time this method is difficult to be done. The industry requirement has forced the bamboo logging every time. Therefore, the industrial bamboo plan now is using anti insect chemical to fight the insect attack. But the uses of anti-insect chemical should be done carefully since it may pollute the bamboo and the environment.
Bamboo also must be dried before
