Does anyone have any experience dealing with termites? My girlfriend brought a box of Christmas decorations up from her basement, and sure enough, it had holes chewed in the bottom, and larvae in it. It is an older city type house, and this box is kept in an old coal room at the front corner of the house. Now, mind you...her old front covered porch (all wood) is in need of replacement, as the flooring is even soft in some spots. I'm sure she has wet and bad wood under there which is DEFinitely going to need to be completely rebuilt next year. What I am wondering, is what type of termiticide should be used, and do I need to drill in to any wood if I notice any hollow spots, and will something like bifenthrin be effective for this. Anyone with structural experience, I would GREATLY appreciate the help.
