Indoor termites - how to safely rid of them forever

Asked April 1, 2017, 5:33 PM EDT

We discovered brown mud like lines on an upper wall and ceiling a few days ago near a window. Then we saw many flying insects on and in it. We looked closely and they are termites! We sprayed quickly with bug spray so they are not moving currently. What else do we need to do?

We viewed your photos and the insects look like termite swarmers. We recommend that you contact several pest control companies for an onsite inspection, an active infestation, and the best way to proceed. You may have an area that has a leak that requires some repair or replacement.
