Drywood Termite, please help in RENOVATION WORKS Posted July 8, 2018 · Edited July 8, 2018 by pulpy Found the resale unit we got has drywood termite in one of the built in cabinets. We gave consulted 2 pest control companies. 1 suggest to spray chemicals to kill it before hacking away. The other said not to agigate them or they may spread. Just tear down the structure. We are already living in there. Can somone share your own experience on how to get rid of them effectively?
