    do you all think its ok to buy a house that was treated for termites? I'm trying to buy a house and am seeing so many homes that were treated for termites.

    As long as there is no structural damage. If you live in a "termite" area then its most often "when not if ". Also the termite treatments in my area are gauranteed for several years. In some ways thats better than one that has never been treated. There is one type of termite that cant be prevented, its just luck of the draw when they swarm and the wind blows. You could have a house test negative and then get them the next day.

    I would suggest calling a few pest companies find one that likes to talk about it, and get an education. Before moving where we live now, I believed once you had termites, the house was junk. The fact is they are 100% treatable. The only real caution is whether or not the house needs structural repair.



    Why don't these Treos come with a termite detector?! This guy obviously needs one and Damn it!! Palm should've known that.


    Runs off looking for that class action thread...

    Nice sxtg...get them all into a frenzy

    It's required in Georgia to have a termite prevention service...I'm not sure many people here know that. Why don't you just hire an inspector to check for previous termite damage?

    Here, in India, termites in the house are considered bad-luck. Time to pack your bags and leave (for good).

    Define treated for termites. Were they previously infested, or are they just under some sort of preventive contract? If the former, I think it depends on the extent of the infestation.

    I saw drill marks in the laundry area along the wall; in the basement. so, I assume its been treated. the current owner says she never had a problem so I quess the previous owners treated it.

    Sounds like you should have it professionally inspected.

    coming from the licensed architects at my firm.....as long as its been treated, and you have a certification saying it has been mitigated, then you should be fine.

    When I saw the title to this thread I thought it was another 700p/Palm-bashing thread. To think the thread stayed mostly on topic. Sigh.
