I, too, have smelled an odor that termites produce, but I would not describe it as "pot-like". Pot is an odor that I am somewhat familiar with, and it is not something that came to mind when I came upon a termite nest. What I did smell was something like a chemical smell, but one that I can not identify. I have smelled the same smell in several instances and in two states, Ohio and Pennsylvania. It almost reminds me of a petroleum smell, but that does not fully describe it. I was reminded of the smell while watching an animal on television that lives in Mexico, and eats mostly termites. It was described as having a very good sense of smell. I thought to myself, "I know that smell." Luckily, my computer is sitting right next to me, so I typed in "smell of termites" on a search engine. This link appeared, and now I have confirmation that someone else has smelled this smell. Ahhhhhh. The unmistakable smell of termites.
