This is a reminder to not get complacent about having termite check done regularly and the termite barrier around the house replaced regularly.
I let two years go by since the last termite inspection (which gave the all clear) and the pest control person has just told me there are termites in front half of the house, affecting all window frames and quite possibly the timber framework in the walls.
Have no idea of cost of replacing all this, but obviously it won't be cheap.
Damn! plus a few more expressive curses!
So keep up the regular checks, folks - they'll be a lot cheaper than the alternative.
