Do I have termites…?

Question:

The previous owners of my home had termites issues and had several treatments for this, I have noticed I have small tunnels in my basement and garage, should I just break them up so they cannot live in these?

Answer:

Don’t break them up until you have someone inspect them. Some treatments work better than others. We treat the wood with borates so the wood is permanently unavailable as a food source. Termites just don’t go away. You really have to be vigilant, remember an inspection is free of charge and obligation. Tubes are a very good warning sign, if you see them don’t ignore them. Many of the popular termite treatments are only effective while you pay the monthly service charge. A permanent treatment is safer and much more effective.
