Late last week, Craig spotted this on the top of one of the bedroom windows....
Rose Pest Solutions. They sent a guy out yesterday, and confirmed. We have termites. :-(
Although the tech confirmed they were termites, he was a bit puzzled we had them. We have a brick home on a cement slab. He has never seen a home like that infested. It's not easy for termites to find a way into a brick home. Lucky us! And he was unable to find any access point. He could only speculate that they must have gotten in through a crack in the slab.
Anyway, we have purchased the recommended treatment. After miss dig marks the house for utilities, they will send out a tech to drill holes around the entire house and install bait traps. He claims they have a 100% success rate in eliminating the entire colony and protecting from future infestations.He also said it was a fairly new infestation, so there should be no structural damage. He estimated it at less than a year old.
And so, as life would have it, it's always something! The last thing I thought I'd ever have to worry about was termites!
Oh well, deal with it and move on as I say.
