Q. When I removed the rug from our dining-room floor, I discovered the wood flooring below is being eaten by termites. What would you do to get rid of them? A. Rashed Brooklyn, N.Y.
A. By all means, seek help from a responsible pest-control company. I would not recommend that you attempt the control yourself.
Control of termite infestation depends on their type. The pest-control operator will identify the termite type and submit to you his written price and method of control, including a guarantee.
For a modest fee, the pest-control operator should return once a year for an inspection and additional control, if needed.
