new windows arrived with termites included???!!!
I don't think I've ever seen a live termite before the other day.. At least not one that I'd ever known of.
I got 3 custom double hung windows from T.M. Cobb. Once I installed and was sliding my sashes to verify I did a half decent job installing... little wings started falling out from between the sashes and then I found little bugs crawling around in the sashes.
I googled termites... and lo and behold... my new windows have termites :eek:
I plan to call TM Cobb and give them a bit of the business... but I was wondering if anyone has ever had this happen and if they ever had any success in getting some kind of termite extermination or something out of the company.
That’s a new one on me.
Did you get any pictures of this event? Are they still falling and crawling?
I doubt the critters came with the windows. That wood is usually kiln dried and treated with preservatives. I would suspect that you had termites in the framing and they were brought to the surface by the construction.
I find termites, active or old damage, more often than my customers would like, while installing door/windows.
The only way they are in the new windows is if they were not made from a preserved wood and were stored outside on bare earth for quite some time.
It is about 99.9% more likely that that they are already in the home per Bill's suggestion.
