The Termite Trojan Horse

By
Real Estate Agent with DWELL REAL ESTATE BK3105105

I love shopping in antique and consignment shops but the money saved can often cost you a bundle.  One of my sellers is now going through the expensive procedure of having her three floor home completely tented because of a lovely dining room table and six chairs she purchased at a great price.  Termite infestation is not always visable until it is too late and once the furniture is in your home you have your Trojan termites. Termites There is a solution and it is quite a simple one.  Here in Sarasota we have several pest control companies that offer "Vault" fumigation.  One of them is Pestguard.  You have your furniture delivered to them, it is stored in an air-tight container until there is enough furniture to warrant a fumigation run and then you can come pick it back up, all clean and clear.  So, be cautious when bringing any kind of wooden furniture, baskets or accessories into your home.  You never know what lurks within!

Wow! never given much though to Trojan Termites storing away in furniture of other items. Knowing where to store wood furniture in a safe environment or have them fumigated would eliminate these sneaky pest from invading our home.

Like Bob, never heard of this either. Makes a lot of sense though.

Marnie, I've always wondered about that and particularly with some rough primative pieces that are stored in a barn or shed on a dirt floor!  Pennies on the dollar to get proper protection!

Wow Marnie I've never heard of this happening to anyone here in PHX and we've known for termites.  That would be a major bummer - yikes!
