10 Termite Scams: Consumer Beware

#3.  Reselling the Same Work

 

 

Let’s say a house is thirty years old, and ten years ago, it was tented. There are termite pellets in the attic. Is this a new infestation, or is this what was seen ten years ago? The law in California regarding termite work is clear that as part of any treatment all evidence should be “masked”. That means that all pellets or wings, or any termite evidence should be marked, covered, repaired, or in some way changed so that it is clear in the future what work was done. Otherwise, it is impossible to determine what is new. When evidence is  not properly dealt with, someone will have to pay for termite work again.
