Found some termite activity on some scrap wood in my crawl space?

Hi, I just finished one project with your help and products and now I have a new project. I'm looking at a rental property. I have done a very detailed inspection and can find no termite activity to the structure.....both in the home and under the home look great. When I lifted the plastic moisture barrier in the crawl space, I found some termite activity on some scrap pieces of wood lying on the dirt under the plastic sheeting. I don't see any dead bodies, wings, or alive termites......just this damage to a couple scraps left by the builders (home is 13 years old). How would I approach this project? I plan to order some more Termidor and treat the soil around the home and treat the soil around the pillers in the crawl space, just as an insurance policy...anything else at this point?

Answer:

You actually sound like you are already on the right track on knowing what to do.  You would apply in a trench with Termidor SC around the outside of the home  and around the pillars in the crawl space. Also inspect the home to ensure there is not an active infestation.  If an active infestation is located it would also be recommended to do the trench along the inside wall of the crawl space.
