TERMITES!

These photos show termite damage to the Sheetrock. I uncovered these while stripping wallpaper today.

In the top photo is a big chunk that the termites have chewed out of the wall. In the second photo, you can see smaller bites they’ve taken, and you can see how they tunnel through the wall.  The black dots are poop.

Luckily, the homeowners were aware of the termite problem, and had treatments long ago. The damage you see is old damage, and the house does not currently have live termites.

Whew!
