You should buy a Ronco Termite-B-Gone and Medical Radiation device. You can get one for 1.5 million at Amazon.

First post here will be in reference to termites. Gotta start somewhere.

I would recommend anyone who purchases a house of a decent age to pay for the circus tent deal and fumigate the entire place before moving in. Trust me, it is worth it. Getting a pest inspection is a waste.

Why you want to do this beforehand is because tenting the place kills everything - plants, food, etc. So not only do you need to move out of the place, you also have to take all kinds of stuff out, including things like toothpaste. The good thing is any pests you have get killed, and you are essentially re-booting the process. Things like flying termites take several years to work their way in there again, but in the meantime add some paint to the place and shield it a little.

Land surveyor. How about yourself?

Looks like you have posted about 22,244 more times than I have, so you probably have mentioned this a few times...

I'm going to pay about $1,400 to have a guy pump a chemical similar to Frontline into the ground around our house and shed, and into the walls and under the subflooring. Then I get to pay him every year to come back and do it again.

There is a Japanese termite eradicating company which maintains a shrine for the spirits of all the termites they have had to kill over the years.

I think it's a bad idea. First they all get together, they develop class consciousness, they get angry, they get organised ... we're in trouble!
