Smells like pot? Maybe you can sell it.... :)

Sorry to make light of your problem, but to answer your question, any odor that termites have (or give off) is not usually detectable by humans. They do create methane, but not in amounts that you and I would ordinarily smell. Well, not me, anyway. This chemical is what the "termite dogs" home in on, but I have never heard of methane having a pot smell.

Many years ago, a friend of a friend bought some speakers from a woman who had a husband (since died) that had been in Vietnam, the speakers had a stash of pot inside, obviously smuggled into the states in the past and forgotten.

Also, wasn't there some deal a few months ago where manufactured homes were having an odor problem from insulation?

Let us know what you find out, sorry I can't be of more help.

---John
