Thumbs down Termites...

Little bastards. They have gotten into my father's garage, it's BAD. This is pretty much going to halt all progress on the cars. I am in the process of trying to hang my car back together before the garage falls on it. The plan is to salvage anything useful from the building, then knock it down. Going to replace it with a steel building, same size - just taller.

This is a total bummer. I knew it had some damage, but once I got in the attic to inspect... I was devastated. Think paper mache', pictures to follow.

Oh, that sucks. We had water rot in our breezeway roof. It was bad but I'm sure termites can do a lot more damage. Pole barn is the way to go. Good luck.

My house in the Philippines fell victim to them. We rebuilt it in brick. Eat that you little monsters LOL.

Had them in my house years ago. Luckily caught them before they went into the walls. They went into some cabinets. Carpenter ants is a bigger problem for us.
