Is it a damn termite?
Hail Yea !!!!!
Don't screw with me Stevie, I have never seen one with a head that looked like that but it sort of does look like one.
Where did you find it? Did you have rain today?
Yes we did have rain and I found the little bastard on my kitchen table. Guess it is time to call that pest company and have them re treat this bitch. Pretty sure I'm still within warranty.
Man, it doesn't look like one to me, but wtf do I know
See, that is what I thought, but then it didn't, and then it did. Screw it, I'm calling in the morning. Can't have those little fuckers running around. That is the 2nd fastest way to lose a house. Ex wife be numero uno
They swarm after a rain. Don't be too alarmed. Have the guy check around the inside and outside of your house. You are looking for the trails they leave. You would typically find them in your bathroom or kitchen (water source). Also, outside you will find them around your foundation. Not usually a big deal. My pest guy would always just treat the area of the property where there was signs of termites (trails). Usually $100 bucks should cover it. No need to do the whole house.
That said, I eventually worked a deal with him to service the sentricon system that was installed for the previous owner for $100 bucks per quarter.
Yeah I know the little piles of dirt they like to leave, like someone threw a mudball at the tile. Little bastards. At least I know that one isn't going to eat anymore.
