long time subterranean termites
I live in a condo and had found some dead bugs with wings in my dryer that is in the garage also some mud tubes on the foundation in the garage. I thought they may be termites but I really didn't know what they where. So I called my association and someone from the association came out and put some of the bugs in a bag to find out what they where. I get a call back a few days later and they told me they where not termites. So know it's 5 years later and I had an exterminator come out the other day for something else and he informed me that the mud tubs on the foundation are subterranean termites. That means I have had them for aleast 5 years now. I had another exterminator come out for a second opinion and he told me the same thing. When I asked the first exterminator about damage that they may have caused to the structure since it has been at least 5 years he really didn't say anything. The second exterminator said I can almost guaranty you have major damage in the walls. That I should have someone in construction come and cut open the drywall and repair the damage. Does anyone know how much damage there maybe after 5 years and how much something like that could cost to repair. I need all the advise I can get.
