Colonies of this social insect occur in sound, dry wood. Workers share food with the other members of the colony. The Tunnels or galleries which house the colony are produced by workers in dry, cured wood are clean and free of debris. Tunnels can run across the grain of the wood. Those reaching the wood surface end in “kick” holes, where you will see fecal pellets or droppings from the colony and pile up below infested wood area. If you see pellets and or something flying, it could be a termite alate, drywood termite swarmer’s have a red head and subterranean termites have a black head. We can use products that can infect a termite and it is an advanced undetectable liquid technology. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest and share it; they are completely unaware that doing so inevitably will kill them if done right and if the product is in every gallery “Transfer Effect™ with Termidor.
How to find a dead rat in a wall!
Rats carry several diseases. Protect yourself before it gets out of hand.
We set traps inside and bait stations outside. This creates many defensive barriers.

To my surprise, she was right as you could see in the video. I ended up sealing all of the entry points with expansion foam and steel whool to exclude these nasty rats from re-entering for some free rent.
Rats carry many diseases such as Hantavirus, Typhus, Salmonella, and Rat Bite Fever. It is important to sanitize and clean any areas where they have been nesting because if you contact or are around rodent activity, you could be in for a surprise.
