Has anyone delt with this problem? What is the best treatment?
I live in New Orleans and we have the worst termite infestation in the nation. I am currently arranging to have some rental property demolished because it is damaged beyond repair by termites.
Termites need water to live. Repair all your leaks. Most termites return to the ground for water, they construct a mud tube from the structure to the ground as they run from light. In a trailer they have only a few place to do this so move the trailer and check all your ground contact points. Treat the infested area with a termercide. More than likely the queen is in a nest in the ground or a infested tree. As long as you don't have a secondary nest ( Another Queen ) in your trailer you should be ok. BTW a queen termite is one of the worst looking creatures you will see. I had one for a pet for awhile.
BTW the area where the house I am tearing down is located will become a swimming pool with my Globetrotter as the pool house.
