Termites ...f^#%

So I saw this in my sink this morning?

Is it a termite???


I bought this house two years ago in August and had it treated for termites (they put poison down - there were no termites). Then last year they came again for an inspection and I don't believe they reapplied poison because it was still good.

I'm due to call them to return this summer, but now I'm freaking out that my house is infested.



Anyone have any experience with this?? Also, is there a chance that it just came inside and my house isn't infested with bugs??


Also, since I have paid a company to protect my house would they be responsible for damage??

Termites look like pale winged ants.

I don't think it had wings. I zoomed in on the picture.

It does have the same body shape though.

Typically a termite bond will cover any structural damage, since they're supposed to be protecting the structure.

You'll have to talk to your specific company. When was your last inspection? When are they supposed to come out again?
