1. Start your own thread.
2. Check the paperwork - did you get a guarantee?
3. Hire an exterminator.

Did you hire the pest inspector? If so, go back to the inspector and go back on the report. As to termite infestations, an inspector can usually tell from the extent of the infestation how long they have been there.

You can also hire a second firm to make the inspection. You need to determine the extent of the infestation, cost to cure, and if possible, whether the first inspection was adequately performed or not.

There are lot of options for termite treatment. Don't go for only one like terminix. Depends on the type of termites, treatment can be differed along with the cost. It is highly suggestible to hire a pest control specialist who offer you various termite treatment after his supervision of your home.

Does home insurance cover a termite problem?

Many homeowners policies do NOT cover termites so you need to be vigilant and address any concerns or problems ASAP.
Hire professionals if there really is a termite infestation.

Termites damage is generally not covered by a homeowners insurance policy.
And there is a reason.
That's because standard homeowners policies provide coverage for perils that are sudden and accidental, not infestations of termites or other pests that should have been prevented with normal and customary home maintenance.
