    They move quickly, and once they have infested the whole residence, you'll never, ever get rid of them.

    And it wouldnt' take 100 or 20 years. If they go after one of the load bearing structures then it's all over. House condemed.

    So go and find the area that the termites are located by tapping on the house around the sawdust.

    Then check it again next month.

    move to where there are no termites. I can help you find a decent home in EP TX within your budget.

    Once again you're talking out of your ass, grandpa

    Termites don't live or stay in the house. They take the food back outside to the queen and larva....Go read a book, know it all
