Uh ho.. Ranch house has some interesting guests..
Douglas (the tenant) alerted us to the presence of some insects which he thought might be termites in the kitchen skylight of the ranch home at Whitmore. When Lane looked at it with him, he found some shed wings and a neat pile of frass (insect poop). Lane declared it was that of drywood termites.
Later, Clark Pest Control confirmed the presence of drywood termites in the rafters of the house. It appears to be a limited infestation, but they could not access and inspect all parts of the attic. They did not find any subterranean termites or other problems under the house. They recommended fumigation of the house.
