I am purchasing a W loghome built in 1992, stained inside and out in northeast Florida.The owner says it has never been treated for termites. Just had the WDO and was informed there was evidence of past termite activity (swarmers in spider webs) but no damage.She informed me to seal the outside to prevent future infestation. What would you suggest?


Not sure what to tell you. If you want to keep it you should try to find out if it has ever been borate treated. If not, you will want to consider stripping it and treating, then restain. You could contract a exterminator to keep it sprayed as a second option until the stain is failing.
