Question

My wife and I found evidence of termites


Not as bad as it sounds---really funny
A few years ago My wife and I sold our lake home and was in the process of moving. We started in our attic storage and had a full load on the trailer and the pickup.
I started to close the tailgate and, to my horrow, it had termites crawling on it
We unloaded the truck and went through every box to determine where the source was. We found nothing but termites scammering throughout the beb of the truck
At that moment of horrow- I saw where the termites were coming from.
Since we sold our home ourselves, I had about six "For Sale" signs in various spots in the neighborhood. All post were treated --EXCEPT ONE
I had collected the signs and threw them in the bed of truck just reached over the side of truck bed and removed them. We then just pushed the boxes in the truck and didn't notice.
We both had a good laugh of relief

My wife and I found evidence of termites


funny but...

did the termites come with the sign post or was it due to locals? Since the house is now sold, I suspect it won't make a lot of difference to you but it could affect the buyers.



and now comes the plaintiff claiming Giles and spouse , hereafter referred to as ; defendants, acted in a negligent manner by transporting termites to the property via a sign post which they recklessly left on the ground near the property so as to cause an infestation to be established. We seek damages in an amount required to totally rebuild the house purchased from defendants due to the extensive damages cause when the termite infestation converted our newly acquired lake home into a newly acquired pile of sawdust along the lake shore in a matter of 3 months time.

I immediately sprayed all the termites I could see, the post was one I placed on the side of road about one mile away--maybe a few survived
