I’ve got termites!

Music to a termite operator’s ears, but not to the home owner. Most home owners instantly fix their fate to a fumigation. The first thing to do is schedule an appointment with a reputable termite company (BPC, of course!) to determine the presence and type of termite. They may not be the more common DRYwood termite but the more insidious sub-terranean termite.
Subs are not killed off by fumigation. They live in the soil, come up to eat and recycle back to the soil to replenish the colony moisture. They must be attacked in the soil.

So, if you have termites, you may not be headed for a fumigation after all.
