Is it possible to have termite damage and not ever see a live termite when doing repairs?
While remodeling my laundry room and living room we found termite damage. There were no live termites only their trails and the damage in both rooms. I've got pest control to come out and treat home. My question is, is it possible for termites to damage only 2 rooms and then disappear completely? Also we had bats in our attic, but got rid of them in Sept. 2013, could the bats have eaten the termites?
It is very possible that there may have been a colony there at one time, or that it has moved somewhere else in the structure. You want to contact an exterminating company in your area to do an inspection. Normally, no charge. They will be able to tell you if you have termites and what species. Once we know, we can make an effective treatment plan.
