Q:  I noticed, when digging up a stump in our yard, that it was filled with termites. Are the termite eliminating products sold in stores as effective as having the house professionally treated?
Thanks, Lee

A:  Are you sure they are termites--usually you won't find termites in a stump as they typically like dry wood like in a basement. However it doesn't matter as the killer is the same as i have found Ortho Home Defense Max works very well for anything that crawls and it is recommended for termites.
