Ok, a year ago I discovered we had termites and called around askign for quotes from different companies. I was refered by one retired pest guy to my local pest control firm. So I ended up going with them. They came gave me a good rate explained what they would do etc. They told me they would either use Termidor or the one that starts with a P (can't remember what it is called now). Well I had to work the day they came but my husband was home, I told him what they said they were going to use etc. Well, they used something that started with an M (sorry I'm terrible with names. About six months later I was working in my flower beds and noticed termites (the flower beds are against my foundation and the termites were within a foot of the foundation. I call the termite company back and they come and treat just in the top bed again, but said only because it was within a foot of the foundation. Well we went ahead and renewed our contract with them just a couple weeks ago becuase we figured if we have any other problems it will be a lot cheaper than having to pay the full price again. They came and inspected while my husband was home and I was at work, they didn't see any signs of infestation. Well afterwards I was looking around and noticed out back about two feet from the house we had a landscaping timber and under it were termites. We also have our driveway out back outlined in with railroad ties and they are under them also. When treating for termites what should they treat? We do not have a huge lot and the railroad ties are within 15 ft from the house. Also what can I do to treat them since they will not? I cannot see any signs of them in my house but they are so close and destroying my property also.
