And it sounds more like they're the "Termite DEMOLITION Team".
Granted, I've never watched this being done, so I'm probably gonna get get called "STOOPID" by somebody, but these guys are checking for termite infestation by using a "probe" on a painter's pole, and banginging it against all the exposed wood they can see and reach.,
thump, thump, thump, thump,thump,thump for the last 35 minutes.
And once in a while you hear thump,thump,thump,thump, CRUNCH, thump, thump, thump.....
The "crunch" is not good because it means their "probe" just busted through what was left of a piece of wood that the termites have been feasting on.
So far they've found a couple of spots they're calling "dry rot", a couple of boards on the fascia for the garage, and the 4x4 holding the window A/C unit up.
Orkin was here two years ago and gave the place a clean bill of health, but then they didn't run around banging on stuff, either.
Hopefully this stuff won't be too expensive to repair.
