I am not the type of person who likes any kind of bugs. I went camping once when I was younger, with some cousins, and I hated every single minute of it, mostly because of the bugs. I knew that there were all kinds of bugs such as termites in NYC, but I honestly never expected to find any in my own home. Well, truth be told, I didn’t find them, but I did find the evidence that they left behind, letting me know that they were in my house.
I had no idea that what I was seeing was even termite excrement. I knew that it was the droppings of some kind of insect or bug though, and I had my neighbor come over and look at it. He is one of those outdoorsy types, so I figured he would know, which he did. He said that it was most likely termites because of the ridged pellets. He did not know any other bug’s dropping that looked that way. He even gave me the recommendation on who to call. He said that when he purchased his house years before I moved in, he had the same company come out and do a termite inspection.
Though it had been years, he told me that they were extremely professional about it and did not miss anywhere that termites could possibly be. He was lucky since they did not find any, but that luck ended with me. I contacted the company that he told me about, and they were able to come out the next day. I really appreciated the quick service, and they were able to confirm what my neighbor had suspected. They did a great job in getting rid of the termites for me, and I am going to have them do regular inspections for me now.
