bug update

Good morning.
Well, we finally had a decent day yesterday. Sunny and mild. Near 63.
Monday, was cloudy and cold, but Craig managed to get the yard mowed, while I cleaned up around the foundation of the house in preparation for the Tuesday installation of the Sentricon system for those little bastard termites.

Tuesday morning the tech from Rose Pest Solutions arrived at 9:30am and installed these...

We now have 17 of these around the perimeter of the house. They are baited with a product termites supposedly love.  They have been placed 8-10 feet around the entire house. Apparently, even though they have my entire house to eat, the constantly send out scouts looking for new food sources and will eventually find these. How long depends on numerous factors, too long to say, but lets just hope they find these sooner than later.
Also Tuesday, I washed all 3 cars while Craig cleaned the windows.
Now, it's back to work!


  1. Way to spend your weekend. ;-)
    I hope they find them quickly, too.
    But have they figured out how they got in?
    Someplace needs to be sealed.
    Have a great week!

  2. Do they come back to check the traps? How will you know if they're working?
