Are these termites, and do we need to act now?
Hi, we live in the SF Bay Area (Nor Cal). Yesterday, while clearing out the crawl space, I found a cardboard box that are infested by these insects. Are these (in the image below) the infamous drywood termites? The weird thing is, only this one empty box was infested, and the neighboring cardboard boxes are all intact. I've thrown away that one box already. Do I have reason to believe that the termites are else where too?
Another question is, do termites cause damage fast (if they do exist elsewhere in the house), or can we wait for a while before we get the treatment? (Mainly, we are doing kitchen remodeling and are a little overwhelmed right now.)
