Invasion of the Termites

We had an invasion this last week, and the result was 2 new bathrooms.

      About 2 weeks ago, we came home at 10:30 on a Friday night after Institute and opened our door and found that while we had been gone, Termites had swarmed  in our apartment. Well we got out the Prometherin and started spraying and were able to kill most of them......................we thought.  So the next day, we swept up all the dead bugs, mopped and Cloroxed the apartment and went on with  missionary work.
     1 Week later we came home and we had Termite larvae all over the place. We sprayed them down again and killed them..........................we thought and took it a step further. We let our landlords know that we had a termite problem. We could see the places in the walls where they had come through. Our landlord, said they would come and check on it after they finished the work they were doing on 2 other units. We said that was fine, we thought we had probably killed them all this time.
   Little did we know that we had only made them mad.  We came home 1 week later, Sunday evening after a late Fireside, opened our door and there were Swarms of flying termites everywhere. We immediately started spraying, but they were all over, even in our sheets, between the sheets, in our cloths, everywhere. It took about an hour to spray enough to be able to have them stop swarming( we will probably get some kind of cancer from all the Prometherin we breathed in).
   Well the next morning the repair guy came to check out the problem, he took one look at our mess from the night before( you have to wait to sweep them up until the Prometherin drys and kills all the bugs) and started tearing apart the walls in the bathrooms and found them everywhere.
    Anyway, long story short, we now have 2 pretty new bathrooms, at least the walls are new.

Where the Termites had come through

And this is only 1 bathroom
One thing I will not miss, Termites !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
