Our village is popular for termites because almost every house has been infested. From what I remember, we had eradicated termites 3 times already. In the recent repair of our ceiling the other week, it was a heart-breaker to discover that termites were eating up the wood under the roof. So before replacing the ceiling cover, we had to buy wood to replace the small beams (I don't know if this is the correct term for the 2 by 2 wood). It took the 2 workers 2 days to clean up the ceiling of termites by using wet insecticide and later on they applied a spray for further prevention. It is scary to discover termites in the house because it can eat up the whole house.
