Living with termites in Bend!

A:

The western subterranean termites are common in Central Oregon. Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question as there are different ways to manage for termites and some take longer than others. I do not know what type of management the company you worked with used. Here is a great article that walks you through some very common questions: Termite Control: Answers for Homeowners

I would recommend you read through all of it, but in the middle of the page they discuss the two most common types of control and how they work. Non-repellants and baits. Find out what kind your exterminator used. Once you know what kind of control was used, you may also want to call a few other exterminators to confirm how that particular type of control works. Here is an additional article: Frequently Asked Questions about Subterranean Termite Control
