Okay so last night I found that the house we are renting has termites. The way I found out was, I never really looked at it up close but the moulding under the window in the office where I am right now looked kind of weird. Like the wood is uneven...anyway...I pressed on it and it popped a little hole in it by accident...come to find out, it isn't molding in that spot. It's tape...and they painted over the tape with white paint to make it look like moulding. So anyway with that little hole in it that I accidentally made I saw something move. I looked a little closer and OMG it's termites! Now that I know they're there I can hear them moving around under the window in that spot. You can also tell underneath the window where the molding is supposed to be that there is a hollow spot This tape covers about a foot to a foot and a half under the window...My question is..obviously the lanlord knows about it if it's covered up, right? Shouldn't they have told us about it before we moved in?? (i actually moved in in May, while my bf has been here since last October of 2007) I'm worried they might come out and start chewing up my coffee tables and other furniture here in the house. Believe me, I told the boyfriend about it last night. he doesn't want to say anythign to the rental company. He said, "just don't worry about it" I really don't know what we should do. They'd probably want to come tent the house if they knew about it though.
