Sreenithi from Ga writes,

I found termite in my bathtub. I have no clue how it got there. How to identify and kill?

When I purchased the home 6 months back, I did termite inspection. No termite found that time. I do not have any termite protection installed. Last week, I found 6 termites found in my bathtub which is located exactly at the center of the house. It is slab house. I do not have any clue from where those termites came to bathtub. Can I install any termite bait inside bathtub drywalls?


The first thing you need to do is get the termites identified to know exactly what kind you have. You may want to have a local company come out and do an inspection to see if they can find any signs of live colonies in the home. If you do have termites, in the home, the bait sytem would not be used in the walls. You would do a spot treatment with a product like Termidor Foam in the walls, or drill through the floor and slab to treat the soil below it with Termidor SC where the termites are coming up through a crack or around a pipe.
